This past week has been jam-packed with federal and military news–so much, in fact, that if I gave each a separate post you’d be here reading until Thanksgiving. Below are links to some of the best and brightest web articles of the past week.
The top news, of course, is Veteran’s Day. The staff of CareerPro Global work with the exceptional men and women of the military every day–we are, in fact, dedicated to assisting them with their transitions into civilian life and have been since 1986. We are in awe of the exceptional work and sacrifice given by these spectacular folks. Any many of our own are veterans themselves.
We salute our veterans–as well as those who are still in active duty and those who have given their lives for their country. You have our appreciation and love.
Do you know how Veteran’s Day came to be? Here is the history of the Day: http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/vetdayhistory.asp
CareerPro Global is working on an exceptionally exciting high-visibility initiative for veterans that is coming soon from the White House, Joining Forces, and we are giving vets a sneak peek of our material here: http://veteranstransitionhq.wordpress.com/2011/11/11/joining-forces-for-veterans-day/
