Virginia Values Veterans program exceeds hiring goal
More than 26,000 military veterans have been hired in the commonwealth through the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) program.
That number exceeds Gov. Terry McAuliffe's goal of hiring 25,000 veterans by the end of his four-year term in January 2018.
The governor originally set a goal of hiring 20,000 veterans by that date. The benchmark passed last year.
The V3 program works with companies throughout Virginia to recruit, hire, and retain military veterans in the workforce. Nearly 600 companies now participate in the program.
V3 is a program of the Department of Veterans Services.
