Hiring Red, White & You! Veterans Hiring Fair
 
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has announced the release of new Public Service Announcements featuring U.S. Army veteran and The University of Texas at Austin Football alumni Nate Boyer and country music artist Aaron Watson in support of the agency’s Hiring Red, White & You! statewide hiring fairs on November 12, 2015 in 27 different cities throughout the state of Texas.
 
“When you get out of the military, you have an opportunity to start a new life and do whatever you want,” said Nate Boyer. “I would encourage everyone that’s transitioning out of the military to not be afraid to go to something like this event because you never know who you might meet or find out about a job you never knew existed that fits you perfectly.”

VA's million Veterans program hits 400K milestone
 
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Million Veteran Program (MVP) has enrolled its 400,000th Veteran volunteer, squarely putting it on track to become one of the world’s largest medical databases, linking genetic, clinical, lifestyle and military-exposure information, with the goal of learning more about the role of genes in health and disease.
 
“We are proud to see the progress being made in MVP, and we are confident the knowledge gained through this research will have a very tangible and positive impact on the health care that Veterans and all Americans receive,” said VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald. “We applaud our Veterans participating in the program. The selfless sacrifice they are making will allow researchers to gain valuable, important information.”
 
Veterans who volunteer for the program donate blood, from which DNA is extracted, and periodically fill out surveys about their health, health-related behaviors and military experiences. They also consent to having authorized researchers access the information in their VA electronic health record, and to being re-contacted for future research opportunities. All information, genetic and otherwise, is kept secure and de-identified. Samples and data are coded; no names, birthdates or social security numbers are shared.
