Governor Mike Pence with Military Families

A Welcome Message from Governor Mike Pence

Indiana is home to nearly half a million veterans and Hoosiers are proud of our state’s commitment to serving these men and women when they come home. The transition from military to civilian life can pose a number of difficulties for our veterans, but I believe we are making a difference in the lives of these heroes.

Our Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs stands at the ready to provide services available to veterans, including claims assistance, employment, and education and family assistance through the Military Family Relief Fund. To help veterans start or expand their own business, we set a goal on day one of our administration to have at least three percent of Indiana’s competitive contracts come from veteran-owned businesses, and we are well on our way to meeting that goal.

I am especially proud of our efforts with regard to employment assistance services. Veterans can visit one of the many Community Employment Engagement Events around the state for help in finding employment, or call the Veterans Service Center at 1-844-480-0009. There, Hoosier veterans can work with a Veterans’ Employment Representative, who can help connect them to a career opportunity. Hoosier veterans also can find a number of Veteran Opportunity Partners here. These are companies that hire veterans because they know that veterans make great employees.

By partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and becoming an All*Vet State, we can reach many more Hoosier veterans and share with them the many opportunities here in Indiana. Indiana is a state that works, and we are proud to be an All*Vet State because we value the service and sacrifice made by all those who have worn the uniform and their families.
