Helping Veterans Returning Home from Afghanistan and Iraq Find Jobs at Home

We are proud that so many service members and veterans call Northwest Washington home. With the end of the war in Iraq and the winding down of war in Afghanistan, thousands of these service members are returning home and transitioning back to civilian life as veterans.

These veterans put their lives on the line, and now we must do all that we can to help them find jobs here at home. That is why I voted for the Vow to Hire Heroes Act which created tax credits for businesses that hire veterans.

I also established a veterans skills-to-jobs initiative in my Everett office to help veterans translate the skills they developed in the military to meet private sector needs.

As we build a 21st century economy based on innovation and manufacturing, our veterans are one of our greatest resources. I am committed to working with them to make sure they get the services they have earned and the jobs they deserve.
