You are cordially invited to attend an event featuring the Director of the US Army Soldier for Life Program and hosted by the World’s #1 Resource for Active Duty and Veteran Personnel— focuses on closing the veteran and employer gap, to help streamline the process and work towards decreasing the nation’s veteran unemployment rate.
