The Commonwealth has a proud history, and leads the nation in providing benefits and services to our returning Veterans.  Of the Commonwealth‘s Executive Branch workforce, approximately 5.4% are self-identified Veterans.  Vietnam Era Veterans represent 1.3% of the overall population.

The Governor called for the establishment of an Interagency Taskforce on hiring Veterans.  In March 2012, the Commonwealth’s Interagency Veterans Taskforce on Employment was launched.  The taskforce was charged to take a critical look at the Executive Branch’s current policies, processes and practices on hiring Veterans and to think creatively and boldly in offering recommendations.
