Thank You, Veterans

veterans day

Toward the end of WWI, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, an armistice, or temporary ceasefire, went into affect between the Allied nations and Germany. President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first Armistice Day that following year. This was later made a legal U.S. holiday in 1938, known as “Armistice Day.” Then in 1954, “Armistice” was replaced with “Veterans” and November 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Digital Works, a program of Connected Nation, is proud to support our U.S. veterans by helping to connect veterans and their family members with modern, online job opportunities. Forty-nine veterans have received career training through the Digital Works program. The flexible, work-from-home career opportunities available through the Digital Works program can be especially helpful for veterans living with disabilities, needing variable work hours, not wanting a commute, or looking for a work-life balance.

Below is a list of Digital Works participants who have served our country. Digital Works staff members thank you for your service and your sacrifices.
