Join The Conversation: #SaluteVETS

Each year in November, supporters across our nation pause to celebrate the many men and women who have served in our armed forces. One of the best ways to honor our veterans is to make sure they are prepared for the workforce and have opportunities for meaningful employment.

If you know a veteran who is seeking employment, point them to an American Job Center (www.servicelocator.org) or share this “How-To” video to help them find their path.

Join the conversation online and share how you pledge to #SaluteVETS.
