Bill Beverley-Blanco, a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel, is a Certified Peers Support Specialist at Atlanta VA Health Care System and a volunteer host at America’s Warrior Partnership Symposium. Here, Bill explains the incredible synergy, collaboration and serendipity that comes out of the America’s Warrior Partnership, helping him get resources to the people who need them.

When Bill talks about re-entering the workforce as a veteran, he talks about how “recovery is not to go back and find something that you lost, but to recreate who you want to be in the future from here as you go forward, to create yourself again every day to reinvent yourself, to grow continuously and evolve.”

Organized by America’s Warrior Partnership, the Warrior Community Integration Symposium is an opportunity to share best practices, find innovative solutions, and form new collaborative partnerships to better help the veterans in their communities address the work challenges they sometimes encounter when making the transition to civilian life. 

WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Symposium and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issue of helping veterans deal with workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
