Today, the White House hosted a conference of nearly 200 Native American and Alaska Native Veterans

From Judd Deere:

Today, the White House hosted a conference of nearly 200 Native American and Alaska Native Veterans, active duty service members, and state, local, and tribal Veterans champions, to honor the long legacy of military service of the broader Native American and Alaska Native community. Native Americans and Alaska Natives have participated in every major United States military encounter from the Revolutionary War to recent conflicts in the Middle East and have served at a higher rate than any other ethnic group in the United States.

During the conference attendees interacted with several Federal leaders from the White House, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of the Interior, Department of Labor, and Small Business Administration, and several other agencies, including Vice President Pence, Secretary Bernhardt, Secretary Wilkie, Secretary Scalia, and Administrator Pilkerton.

The event highlighted accomplishments of the Trump Administration to improve support for our Nation’s Veterans and facilitated a discussion on the issues facing contemporary Native American Veterans, such as housing, job training, entrepreneurship, and pathways to prosperity post-service. Earlier in November, President Trump declared November as National Native American Heritage Month and also as National Veterans and Military Families Month.
