To end the year, we hosted the 4th Annual Milwaukee Veterans Week. The week kicked off with our Veterans in the Workforce Awards Luncheon at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Our guest speaker, Mr. Bill Davidson, Director of the Harley-Davidson Museum, shared Harley-Davidson’s rich history of military and veteran involvement and support. The Veterans in the Workforce Awards recognizes the progress Wisconsin businesses have made in the areas of veteran and military spouse employment, the inclusion of veteran-owned businesses in diverse supplier pipelines and support of the military families in our communities. Award winners included:
Veteran Employer of the Year: Baird
Veteran Resource Group of the Year: Froedtert Health
Veteran Recruitment Campaign of the Year: Kohler
Veteran Community Supporter of the Year: WPS Health Solutions
We ended the week with our 4th Anniversary Veterans Chamber Muster at the Milwaukee Yacht Club. We were honored to highlight the members of the Milwaukee Yacht Club who sponsored a Milwaukee VA Medical Center series "Veterans Sailing Program" for 10 weeks. This program introduces veterans to the art and joy of sailing. Members of the Milwaukee Yacht Club volunteered their time, talents and vessels.
