The man responsible for getting Sturgeon Bay named a U.S. Coast Guard city likes a new program designed to attract military veterans to Wisconsin. Bob Desh of Luxemburg, a U.S. Coast Guard veteran himself, applauds the goal of the nearly two-million-dollar recruiting campaign. State officials and business representatives will visit military bases and summits for veterans about how to transition out of military life. Desh says such programs can help veterans and potential employers alike.
The new program also includes a new military occupation code search tool on the state Department of Workforce Development’s jobs website to help veterans match their skills to job openings.
