Veterans Employment Initiative


In partnership with the Wisconsin National Guard, as well as many state and federal agencies, The American

Legion's Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI) assists at Veteran Job Fairs to promote the hiring of veterans.

The VEI also steps in to help the veteran get established in their new position.  At the critical entry phase of employment, some veterans may lack the necessary tools and equipment to begin work.  Others may need transportation or financial assistance to off-set expenses until their first payday arrives.  The VEI supports veterans by providing equipment, tools and transportation as they enter the work force.
