VETS2INDUSTRY: Unlocking knowledge, connections, resources, opportunities and hope!

Brian Arrington is a retired Air Force Veteran and founder of VETS2INDUSTRY. The non-profit organization supports and helps transitioning military personnel, Veterans and military spouses find meaningful and sustainable careers in the civilian workforce.

In Arrington’s last year of service to the U.S. Air Force, he learned there were over 45,000 plus Veteran Service Organizations nationwide that provided free services and support to U.S. military families. He realized that a huge gap existed between available, free resources and benefits and knowledge among our nation’s heroes and their families.
