Washington, DC – Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) yesterday joined Secretary of State John Kerry to launch the U.S. Department of State’s Veterans Innovation Partnership (VIP).
“These public-private partnerships give us the opportunity to benefit from the skills veterans have developed through their experiences, their commitment to service, their ability to act under pressure and make decisions, to lead, and to put the mission first,” Congresswoman TulsiGabbard told the crowd, many of whom were veterans. “For so many of my friends whom I’ve had the privilege of serving with, this is a tremendous opportunity that will open many doors empowering our veterans to continue to serve.”
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard thanked Secretary Kerry for his leadership on this initiative, noting his service in the U.S. Navy and decades of advocacy on behalf of veterans.
