We Hire Vets Application Submission Request (HOT!) *** (PLEASE READ)

Texas Veterans Leadership Program

My name is Rodney Washington of the Texas Workforce Commission. The State has an employer program called “We Hire Vets” that wishes to recognize and acknowledge employers and organizations that hire and employ at least a ten percent veteran staff, regardless of company size.

This recognition is free of charge and is reflected on jobs posted on the State website www.workintexas.com , as well as awards you physical and digital signage to reflect the designation. It also offers the chance (if wanted) to be recognized at a Texas Conference for Employers https://twc.texas.gov/texas-conference-employers and works on two fronts: it honors your organization for your commitment to hiring our Nation’s heroes and also incentivizes other organizations to do the same.

I am more than happy to assist in any way, one great thing about the award is that you can self-nominate for it using the link https://texasoperationwelcomehome.com/wehirevets-2/ . You can nominate different locations throughout the state if they have a differing Texas Tax ID and thus be honored for each location. I am here if you or your staff run into any issues and please let me know if you complete the form so I can inform my chain of command to be looking for your nomination.

FYI: The next We Hire Vets ceremony on 2/3/2023 at the Wyndham El Paso Airport - Woodlands Ballroom, 2027 Airway (Ceremony Starts at 840a) . Since my last email, my leadership is also requesting the following information:

• Company (employers) name
• Name of the person or person’s who will be accepting the decal and letters at the ceremony
• The percentage of veterans in their workforce.


I'm respectfully requesting this information by next Wednesday, 25 January!

Identify. Understand. Respond

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you (the adult) how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in youths.

The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to youths who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.

Mental Health First Aiders are…
Teachers, first responders and veterans. They’re neighbors, parents and friends. They’re people in recovery, and those supporting a loved one. They’re First Ladies and Mayors.

Mental Health First Aiders are anyone who wants to make their community healthier, happier and safer for all.
