Local veteran-to-veteran efforts honored

The mission of helping military veterans transition back to civilian life in Northeast Wisconsin communities, including those in Door and Kewaunee counties, got some well-deserved recognition from  Representative Mike Gallagher.  County and tribal veterans services officers and college veterans support groups were individually honored with copies of a Congressional Resolution recognizing all local veteran-to-veteran programs.  Kewaunee County Veterans Service Officer Robert Stearns has seen first hand how veterans reaching out to newly discharged service members has been a life-changer.



The resolution was sponsored by Representative Gallagher and Representative Ron Kind.  Gallagher, a veteran himself, says such programs are effective because those who've served share a common view.



The resolution by Gallagher and Kind encourages the use of veteran-to-veteran programs throughout the federal government and Congress.
