America's service members have bravely fought to defend our country, and they should not have to fight for a good-paying job or the benefits they've earned when they leave the service or come home. This page provides information and links on educational opportunities, job banks, workforce development opportunities and other resources for veterans and their families.
If you have questions or need help working with a federal agency, you can also contact my Veterans Hotline at 719-328-1100 or click here to receive assistance.
