Cherokee County now has the privilege of being an Iowa Home Base community
SIOUX CITY, IA (SIOUXLAND NEWS) —
Cherokee County is now a designated Home Base Iowa community, and Iowa's governor, Terry Branstad, was on hand to celebrate.
Home Base Iowa is a program connecting veterans and service members with job seekers in the community.
A "Find a Veteran" feature allows businesses to look for qualified veterans in need of a job.
Cherokee county is the forty-eighth county to join the successful program.
Governor Branstad himself told us that "We're very excited that Iowa is becoming one of the most veteran-friendly states, and the Iowa Business Council says just their companies have placed over 1750 veterans in jobs since this program started.".
Governor Branstad also made a stop in Council Bluffs this afternoon at the Pottawattamie County Veterans Affairs.
