Massachusetts has a long stranding commitment to veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War. The Patrick-Murray 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.
