Ohio is proud to welcome retired, enlisted, and aspiring military leaders to our local communities.
Celebrating 75 Years
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Air Force, JobsOhio set out to tell the story of three Air Force families living and thriving in Dayton. In the first episode of this documentary series, we meet the Mannings, a family of four who planted roots in Ohio five years ago. Public Health Officer Brydon and his wife Jennifer share how the local and military communities have changed their lives. When they moved to Ohio, they were able to find all the resources they needed to support their son Caleb through his journey as a competitive swimmer and their daughter Arabella.

In the second episode of this documentary series we meet the Tylochs, a family of five who planted roots in Ohio three years ago. Sarah Tyloch shares why she decided to retire after serving in the Air Force for eleven years, and the positive impact moving to Ohio had on her entire family.
Landing Home | Episode 3: Excellence In All We Do
Watch the third and final episode of our documentary series “Excellence In All We Do,” and meet The Navarras. In this episode, Jonathan Navarra shares why he decided to retire from the Air Force after twenty years, and his future plans in the state with his wife Tracie and their daughter Londyn.
To share the state’s gratitude for those who serve, servicemen and women and their families receive complimentary tickets, invites, and access to events across Ohio. Each event allows for greater connection with the local community, whether it be a concert, athletics outing, museum visit, or more.
Hometown Heroes events also allow military members and their families to connect with their local community leaders, legislators, and industry leaders. And the events offer an opportunity for the community to share their appreciation and thank those who serve their country.
Each of the JobsOhio regional network partners hosts several Hometown Heroes events throughout the year. Each event is unique to its region and local community. These events are a reminder that every servicemember and military family is always welcome in Ohio.
