LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has declared November as Hire a Veteran Month.
Snyder on Thursday urged Michigan employers to do more to help returning veterans make the transition from military service to employment. The governor's proclamation was issued in conjunction with the Veterans' Services Division of the Michigan Workforce Development Agency.
Snyder's office notes that there are federal incentives and state tax credits available for hiring veterans.
Also this month, Operation Vet Connection 2012 is a series of career and resource fairs. One was taking place Thursday in Lansing. Another is Friday in Marquette.
