In the News

In the News chronicles stories about linkages VA is making with tribal governments. These linkages form critical lines of communication that transition from dialogue to intergovernmental understanding on to relationships and ultimately to deliverables which ensure American Indian and Alaska Native Veterans and their families in Indian Country receive the benefits they've earned through their service to America. These deliverables may take the form of grant awards, announcements of funding opportunities, sharing of best practices and the list goes on. If you have articles or news to share that may be of interest to our readers, please send them to us. Read on...

Native American Calling: Monday, November 11, 2013 Broadcast

You may have seen one of the many national campaigns to recruit veterans for jobs. In May, Wal-Mart announced a plan, to hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a report on the Department of Labor's efforts to reach Native American veterans. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, American Indian and Alaska Native veterans have the lowest rate of employment among ethnic minorities. What are the barriers for Native veterans when they look for a job? What kinds of programs are available for Native American veterans seeking employment? Guests include: Beverly Charley (Navajo) Local Veterans' Employment Representative, Farmington New Mexico Workforce Connections and Royse Cloud, Senior Advisor for Veteran Employment, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
