Today is Veterans’ Day, a time to honor those who have fought for our country in times of war. It is also a good time to highlight services available to Colorado veterans.
There are mainly two state agencies that offer services to veterans:
The Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs is a central source of information on veterans benefits, rights and issues. Their “Veteran Resource Links” page is a great collection of internet resourcesfor veterans.
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment has a program called “Veterans Succeeding in the 21st Century Workforce.” Their mission is “to provide Veterans and transitioning service members with the resources and services to succeed in the 21st Century workforce by meeting labor-market demands with qualified Veterans.” This is the place to go for information on employment services, education and training, and benefits for veterans.
