Warrior Transition Command Launches 'Hire a Veteran' Campaign

STORY SUBMITTED BY J.D. LEIPOLD, ARMY.MIL

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Army's Warrior Transition Command unveiled its three-pronged Hire a Veteran education campaign plan Monday.

The plan aims to help employers understand that wounded warriors can bring a wealth of leadership experience and skills to the table and to their bottom line.

"This campaign is about setting conditions, not just preparing our Soldiers for a new career as a veteran, but also preparing employers about this unique population who has so much to offer," said WTC Commander Brig. Gen. David J. Bishop in kicking off Warrior Care Month at the National Press Club.


"Our goal for this campaign is for employers to gain clarity on how well military skills translate to civilian employment and that post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, known as PTSD and TBI, are treatable conditions which are not unique to the military and most individuals affected go on to lead successful productive lives," he said.

Bishop also noted that the campaign also hopes to get across to would-be employers that, "reasonable accommodation for wounded warriors is not difficult, not expensive, nor a burden when compared to the incredible value our wounded warriors bring to the civilian workforce given their unique training and experience."

To get those messages across to the civilian workforce, the WTC formed a partnership with The Society for Human Resource Management, or SHRM, the world's largest association devoted to human resource management and Orion International, the country's largest military recruiting firm, to produce a 10-minute video that addresses these top three misperception, the obstacles and solutions.
