US Veterans (semi) successful in getting hiring freeze walked back

VoteVets, an organization representing members and ex-members of the US military, were successful in their campaign to get the administration to walk back key parts of an Executive Order that created a hiring freeze at government agencies that included the VA. More from The Hill here.

This is good news for vets who need services. Even so, we can’t assume that these walk-backs will stay in place while Trump is in office. If you are concerned about veteran’s rights, we recommend these charities and organizations that specialize in veteran’s needs.
