St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Several businesses are being honored for helping veterans get back to work.  
 
Ten companies were given the Flag of Freedom award at St. Louis City Hall today for taking part in the “Show Me Heroes Initiative”.  The program has the goal of encouraging companies to pledge to train and hire veterans returning to the workforce.  More than three-thousand companies have made the pledge and more than six-thousand Missouri veterans have gotten work because of it, including more than 500 in the St. Louis area.  
 
Mayor Francis Slay says the city will be putting a charter amendment on this year’s November ballot that will allow preferential treatment when it comes to hiring veterans within the city government.  
 
"We have veterans that have sacrificed personally and their families have sacrificed so that they can protect our freedom, we can continue our way of life", says Slay. "So this is an opportunity for us to give back but our arcane city charter does not allow for us to give preferences to veterans.  This charter amendment will allow that."  
 
The Amendment will take a vote of 60-percent or more to order to pass.
