1000 veterans helped with #1000messages campaign
This summer, we asked you to help us support 1,000 wounded, injured and sick veterans on their first day of a new job by sharing good luck messages using the hashtag #1000messages. Thanks to your incredible messages of warmth and encouragement, we are proud to have achieved our milestone of supporting 1000 veterans find new and meaningful employment. We couldn’t have done this without your support. Thank you.

It is thanks to these strong partnerships that we have managed to help 1000 veterans find their new path in the civilian world.
