WASHINGTON, November 6 Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao's hosted the Department of Labor’s annual "Salute to Veterans" program, which highlighted the many DOL Programs that assist Veterans and military personnel. Secretary Chao also took this opportunity to applaud the military veterans who are now employees of the Department of Labor for their dedicated service to our nation.
"Today, the men and women of the U.S. military are the finest, most capable, and technologically-advanced fighting force in the world. Each year over 318,000 military members return to civilian life," said Secretary Chao. "There is no more appropriate way to celebrate Veterans Day than to focus on them, and what we can do to help them make a successful transition to civilian life when they return."
