Governor’s Weekly Message: Providing Employment Opportunities for Military Personnel

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | News | Date Posted: Friday, August 30, 2013




DOVER – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights statewide efforts to secure employment opportunities for Delaware veterans and military personnel. Earlier this week, the Governor signed a proclamation declaring September as “Hire a Vet Month,” which encourages employers to hire those who serve(d) Delaware and the country in the armed forces.

“We’re building support to encourage employers to tap into these hardworking men and women, and raising awareness of federal and state tax credits available for hiring veterans,” said Governor Markell. “The businesses that turned out at our signing of the Hire a Vet Month Proclamation can attest that veterans are technically savvy, disciplined, good communicators and fantastic teammates, all qualities employers tell us they’re looking for.”

Every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
