Governor Rick Perry today encouraged Texas employers to hire military veterans. Perry was in El Paso today meeting with military personnel at Fort Bliss, and thanked them for their selfless service to protect freedom around the world.

Perry is encouraging businesses through the Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Medical Center’s Hiring Red, White and You! campaign, which connects veterans with job opportunities in Texas.

Perry said,

The talent and experiences our veterans bring back from their service in the military are an important, and, all too often, untapped resource for our communities.

The Hiring Red, White & You! campaign is a great opportunity to help veterans utilize their skills to get a job in Texas, and help employers find talented and experienced individuals to fill open job opportunities.”

TWC is partnering with its 28 local workforce development baord areas and the Texas Veterans Commission to host job fairs for returning veterans across the state on November 15th.
