  1. The White House announced an ambitious hire-a-vet campaign that calls on the federal government to boost job opportunities for former servicemembers. President Barack Obama signed an executive order Nov. 9 titled "The Veterans Employment Initiative," which is intended to transform federal government into a model of veterans' employment. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Burgeson, Carol" <Carol.Burgeson@va.gov> To: "Don" <wittke50@wideopenwest.com> Dear Mr. Wittke: I unfortunately know of no such reference to hire a veteran. Those positions here in the VA restricted to veterans with preference are housekeeping aids.
