  • In July 2001, Michigan’s DLEG launched a Project to identify and recruit veterans, separating to Michigan, for employment opportunities that matched both their skills and career interests.

  • The Project would then seek to connect this unique talent pool of well-trained, high performance military veterans with needs of Michigan’s business community.

  • Contacted 18,000 newly separated veterans & referred them to the LVER & DVOW field staff.

  • Revitalized a national 800 veterans’ hotline offering employment and support services.
