The troops are coming home to our counties after admirably serving the country in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many will be looking for jobs, some will seek counseling services, and others will need assistance with their families.

County leaders celebrate the troops’ homecoming, but even though they are leaving the war, the war doesn’t necessarily leave them. Counties throughout the nation are providing innovative programs and services in health and human service planning, delivery, coordination and outreach to benefit the nation’s military, veterans and their families.

Join NACo President Lenny Eliason, Past-President Glen Whitley and the Veterans and Military Service Task Force at the NACo Annual Conference in Allegheny County, Pa. as they conduct a NACo Town Hall session that will provide insight into the lives of the country’s combat veterans and the issues they face when they come home.
