    This year’s national HIRE Veterans’ initiative, the ‘Vets Medallion Program’ is a chance for the nation’s employers to proudly show how much they promote the idea that Veterans are a welcome and valued addition to their company’s rolls.  More specific information can be found on the following website, under the U.S. Department of Labor’s sponsorship: https://www.hirevets.gov/.
     
    What this initiative allows any company to do is to proudly display the Platinum or Gold Medallion on all correspondence, marketing materials, websites, eMail signatures and more.  Applications are being accepted by the U.S. Department of Labor until January 31st of 2019.  The requirements and commitment are minimal compared to the benefits gained when considering the talents, skills and abilities of our nation’s men and women who have served honorably.
     
    Please join us in promoting this gallant effort and show that Rhode Island, one of the Original Thirteen, will obtain the highest participation rate in New England, if not the nation.  Have your members contact any one of us in the Veteran Services Unit about this exciting program.
