VIRGINIA WINS PERSPECTIVE
 
Our nation’s military and veterans are an incredible asset to the Commonwealth. Not only is it an honor to host those who put their lives on the line to defend our freedom, but military installations provide a large quantity of well paid jobs to the surrounding communities. Military service also teaches a unique skill set, making veterans a talented pool of labor. These features make it especially important to preserve Virginia's military assets and support veterans and their families by increasing the educational and job opportunities available to them.

Military families could be better supported through increased coordination between educational, health, and workplace services. Most importantly, however, is the integration of veterans into the economy once they leave military service. Veterans possess unique skills that have proven to translate well into the civilian workforce. Working with the private sector to aid in their transition will yield great benefits to both the veterans and the businesses that hire them.

When Virginia Voters are educated and motivated, Virginia Wins.

In an era of military and defense cutbacks, how does Virginia continue to leverage our proven record as the best host state and preserve our military assets?
