Connecting A Veteran Community
The Green Zone Initiative (GZI) brochure outlines the case for the need and the strategic plan of how we will go about better connecting veterans to the community in the areas of Education, Wellness and Employment. And just as importantly, we talk about connecting the community to veterans through what the Department of Defense has called "The Sea of Goodwill," where communities are willing and want to reach out to veterans, but simply don't know how and in many cases, don't know the needs of veterans already here and those returning home from a 10 year war.
The brochure is available for download here with 40 pages of information about veterans. Not simply about their struggles and challenges, but the benefits they bring to our state. The Green Zone Initiative is not simply "talking about" veterans issues, it is a plan of intergration to veterans coming back home and an invitation to veterans throughout our country to come to Nevada, to be educated here, to open businesses, find employment and know of the excellent health and wellness facilities available throughout our state. It is "a safe zone" for veterans, the "Green Zone."
Currently underdevelopment is the Green Zone networking site which will be deployed throughout 2013 in phases. It will be the hub where veterans can communicate with each other and the community and in turn, the community will be able to reach out directly to veterans.
