Tuesday the Missouri Military Preparedness and Enhancement Commission (MMPEC) hosted Missouri Military Appreciation Day with an event in the state’s capitol. This day celebrates the significant contributions and sacrifices of this Nation’s Military Service Members and the importance of Military and Department of Defense installations and their significant economic impact on the State of Missouri. Gov. Greitens made the following statement on Facebook:
Today, on Missouri’s Military Appreciation Day, we launched a new program to help returning veterans find quality jobs. We’re working with businesses and community leaders all over the state to help members of our military get placed in apprenticeships, so that when they come home, they can find great work. I’ve seen the tremendous impact that a job can have on a veteran coming home. Too often, men and women who have served their country return home and can’t find quality jobs—even though they have the skills that so many jobs require. We’re going to fix that, and I’m proud that our state is committed to becoming the best in the country for veterans and jobs.
