100,000 Jobs Mission Hiring Event
As part of an ongoing initiative to provide jobs for wounded warriors, transitioning service members, veterans and their spouses, Naval District Washington (NDW) Family Support Programs will host a second hiring event Saturday, Aug. 25 at Naval Support Activity Bethesda (NSAB).
The initiative - "100,000 Jobs Mission" - was launched in March 2011 by a number of leading companies, with a goal of hiring 100,000 transitioning service members and veterans by 2020. Through their efforts, thus far, they have hired more than 12,000 veterans. At the event, attendees will have an opportunity to meet with several potential employers.
"Our nation's military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer. We owe our nation's veterans more than gratitude - we owe them the opportunity to lead successful lives following their service," the initiative's website states. Additionally, "We believe hiring veterans is not only the right thing to do for veterans, but it's a great thing to do for our businesses. Our nation's military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer and they bring meaningful skills to the workplace."
The hiring event will take place in the gymnasium (Building 17) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees must show proof of military service, i.e. military ID card, veteran ID card issued by the VA, or DD-214 along with a photo ID, to enter the base.

Defenders of Freedom Appreciation Day
Naval District Washington's (NDW) Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) will be hosting an Appreciation Day for all Department of Defense personnel and their guests on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Six Flags of America in Largo, Maryland. The park will be open from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. with a special performance by legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd from 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at all Navy Information, Tickets, and Tours (ITT) offices throughout NDW and select locations within the National Capital Region for $18. The first 5,000 eligible customers to purchase tickets will gain admission to the performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
This unique special event will offer these military and DoD civilian personnel a wonderful opportunity for exclusive use of the Six Flags of America theme park and admittance to see one of the all time legendary bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd, perform that evening. Without question, this is a great opportunity for MWR to show appreciation for those who put their lives at stake for the personal freedom we all enjoy. MWR is offering this program, which has a value of over $150 per ticket, for only $18 per ticket including free parking. This very affordable opportunity will hopefully provide the means for up to 25,000 DoD personnel to participate in a day of appreciation for our Defenders of Freedom.
