This Week at the VA
Veterans, smiles and a dog named Honor
In early January the VA Medical Center in
Muskogee, Oklahoma, became a brighter, cheerier place with the arrival of
its newest staff member.
Her name is Honor, and she’s only 18-months-old.
Program helps formerly homeless
Army Vet land a job at VA serving his fellow Veterans
almost a year, Michael Brumfield’s hard work is starting to bear fruit – as
a full time cook at Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System. After he got out of the Army, Brumfield
came back home to New Orleans, but fell on hard times and eventually became
homeless. Having nowhere else to go, he walked into VA’s Community Resource
and Referral Center and asked for help.
Department of Labor awards
program honors employers who hire and retain Veterans
The program stems from the Honoring
Investments in Recruiting and Employing (HIRE) American Military Veterans
Act of 2017, which directs the department to “annually solicit and
accept voluntary information from employers for consideration of employers
to receive a HIRE Vets Medallion Award.”
