DES MOINES, Iowa — Gov. Terry Branstad says he’s working on more ways to help veterans, but he isn’t ready to talk about them yet.
Branstad held a campaign event Tuesday morning with several dozen veterans. He praised their work ethic and talked of the success of his Home Base Iowa program.
It helps provide job, education, and licensing assistance to convince veterans to live in Iowa following their military service.
“We want them to know there are good jobs available in Iowa and we want to facilitate the transition from the military to civilian life,” says Branstad.
The governor says he plans to provide more ideas in the next several months so lawmakers can work on them in next year’s legislative session.
