Latest Resource: Veteran Employment Transition Roadmap

The Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative (MSI) partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative to work with a host of public, private, and non-profit sector partners to capture and consolidate the essential steps transitioning service members and veterans must take to do their part to bridge the gap between supply and demand. By clearly and concisely illustrating the employment transition process for warriors, this coalition seeks to educate, inform, empower, and call to action all key stakeholders in how they can help close the veteran employment gap and narrow the civilian-military divide.


The George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative honors the service and sacrifice of post-9/11 veterans and military families by improving their well-being and unleashing their potential.

Through research, resources, programs and Presidential recognition – the unique ability of the former Commander in Chief to convene, spotlight, and inspire – the Military Service Initiative unites and empowers communities, non-profits (military service organizations), business, academia, philanthropy and individual citizens to effectively support post-9/11 service members, veterans and their families in the areas of jobs, wellness, family, education, housing and women’s veteran issues.
