The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation on Tuesday designated Iowa and two other states as “All-Vet States” for hiring military veterans. The foundation’s All-Vet States initiative was created to highlight the opportunities, services, and support being offered by states to attract and hire transitioning service members and military spouses. By showcasing the benefits and opportunities important to veterans and their families, a state can help influence a transitioning service member’s decision-making process in bringing their skill sets and revenue to that state, according to the organization. The three states receiving the designation Tuesday were Iowa, Michigan and Tennessee. “We are honored to be named an All-Vet state and to be in such good company,” said Gov. Terry Branstad, who has made a Home Base Iowa initiative to serve as a comprehensive source for job services and information about Iowa for veterans a top priority in his 2014 legislative agenda.
