BNSF Helps the USO Support Transitioning Veterans with a Landmark Donation
Wednesday, July 30, 2014
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Job searches are never easy. The task can be even more daunting for veterans looking to land their first civilian position.
That’s where the USO and supporters like the BNSF Railway Foundation step in.
On July 24, the BNSF Railway Foundation announced a $3 million pledge to support USO Warrior and Family Care employment programs for active duty troops transitioning out of the military. The first-of-its-kind, three-year pledge will fund USO programs designed to assist transitioning troops – including those who are wounded, ill or injured – entering the civilian workforce.
"We are thrilled to have BNSF join us in our mission to support transitioning troops as they return to the civilian workforce," said retired Air Force Brig. Gen. John I. Pray, Jr., the USO's Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff.
