Honor Veterans in Less Than 5 Minutes
Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of the Great War (subsequently referred to as World War One). Every November 11 since, in honor of the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” we have celebrated America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of our country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
Our goal at the MVAT Foundation is to help change the culture in America to show how those who protect our freedoms, here and afar, and those whose family member or members made the ultimate sacrifice are supported. And one way we do that is by assisting them with their post-military career success through our Heroes Linked program.
We built Heroes Linked because veterans have overwhelmingly said that the biggest challenge facing them is navigating private sector employment and building a family-supporting career. We listened, and we created a program for them. Heroes Linked is a career success national network of volunteer Advisors who provide mentoring and guidance, as well as a resource directory of continuously updated open positions, veteran-friendly employers, Yellow Ribbon universities, and an extensive listing of other nonprofits and government offices serving veterans.
A strong professional network is the most important factor in career success. And Heroes Linked provides just that: a ready-made network of individuals who built their own careers and using Heroes Linked can easily and securely share their knowledge, insights, and advice with veterans.
Today, Heroes Linked assists thousands of veterans to build and strengthen their post service careers so that they can provide for their families. But the need is far greater. Each and every year, approximately 200,000 new veterans embark on their private sector careers. And they do so without their own professional networks, the networks they could not build while serving in uniform.
Join us in celebrating and honoring those veterans who have served the country in war or peace by creating your Heroes Linked Advisor profile. It costs nothing and takes less than 5 minutes. Thank you.
