Welcome Home Hero

This event, hosted by the Veterans’ Administration, introduces recently discharged troops to available VA benefits, health services and employment counseling. In addition to informational services, refreshments, and entertainment are provided for the new veterans and their families.

APWU participates in this event on two levels: We solicit USPS support to provide informational handouts regarding its employment opportunities for veterans, and we host a moon bounce and a tent of carnival games with prizes for the children. Welcome Home Hero events generally occur in early June. Donations and gifts must be received by May 15th.
