In an effort to provide more opportunities for wounded veterans, multiple federal agencies discussed what they could do to employ veterans as they continue their medical recovery.

Wednesday's meeting was the first time many of the local agency representatives had heard about the program and what opportunities are available to them to provide extra training to wounded veterans and to get extra hands at their office. Those in attendance included a wide range of agencies, from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to the National Weather Service.


"What we're trying to do is spread the word that there are soldiers out there who may not have exactly what you're looking for but need a transition," said Col. Mike Teague, district commander for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Tulsa District.

Wounded soldiers transfer to a Warrior Transition Unit to continue their recovery after leaving intensive treatment. The soldiers are still on active duty and receiving active duty while in the unit.

The unit provides them with employment on the base while they continue that recovery.
