HAUPPAUGE, NY – Pioneer joined U.S. Congressman, Steve Israel, and about two dozen companies including, Northrop Grumman and Telephonics Corp., in the VetsBuild Business Advisory Council. The meeting was held on June 25, 2012 in Hauppauge, N.Y..
This new Business Advisory Council has teamed up with the United Way Long Island and The United Veterans Beacon House to create VetsBuild to use best practices and identify policy changes to address the overwhelming high unemployment rate of post 9/11 veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. VetsBuild will also assist veterans by offering counseling and guidance, as well as, training to hone their skills to gain employment.
The VetsBuild Business Advisory Council will continue to meet at Congressman Israel’s office on a quarterly basis.
