Military and Veterans Affairs Executive Committee
The Military and Veterans Affairs Executive Committee provides thought leadership on how Virginia can protect and secure its current military assets while ensuring our veterans can access civilian careers upon the completion of their service.
Virginia is deeply committed to taking care of service members and their families, and providing a high quality of life for them not only while they serve but as they transition to civilian life. Virginia has the fastest-growing veteran population in the nation, where one in 10 Virginians is a veteran. An important part of caring for our veterans includes preparing and connecting them to careers after military service. Our veteran community also represents an invaluable resource for employers that need highly qualified talent to increase profitability and productivity.
