More than 26,000 military veterans have been hired through the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program, according to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who made the announcement during an address this week at the grand opening of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services Loudoun office in Ashburn. “When my administration took office in 2014, we set ambitious goals to find jobs for our veterans and transitioning service members," he said. "More than three and a half years later, I am proud to announce that more than 26,000 military veterans are now employed in our civilian workforce through the efforts of our Virginia Values Veteranpartners,” Governor McAuliffe said. “That represents a more than four-fold increase in the number of veterans hired since 2014, a real testament to the outstanding work of the V3 team and nearly 600 V3 partner companies and state and local governments.” The V3 Program works with companies across the Commonwealth to recruit, hire, and retain military veterans in the workforce. McAuliffe challenged the program to get 25,000 veterans hired by January 2018. “While we are proud of reaching this important goal in the hiring of veterans, we can’t emphasize enough that the V3 Program has been extraordinarily successful because of the true commitment of the 600 corporate and government partners across the commonwealt…
