Massachusetts has a long stranding commitment to veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War. The Patrick Administration has never wavered on our commitment to those who defended our country. 

The Administration has announced several new initiatives for veterans including a comprehensive plan to  Hire A Veteran Month enhance services for veterans, including re-employment and training of veterans of all eras, especially those returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Declaring November 2011 as “Hire A Veteran Month”, we partnered with a number of trade associations committed to encouraging their member employers to hire veterans for open positions and educate companies of available financial benefits for hiring veterans.
