Veterans Emphasis Program


As the Veterans Special Emphasis Program Manager I will support a workplace environment that ensures civil rights and EEO free of discriminatory bias and reprisals; and where the workforce, customers, and business partners are treated fairly with dignity and respect. I encourage the employment of qualified veterans and provide support to currently employed veterans. I support Pennsylvania NRCS in its effort to promote a diverse and qualified workforce.

  • Military Fitness Center - - Stuck in a rut with your fitness routine? Not getting the results you want? This site provides strategies for reaching your goals and outlines the type of workouts that will help you succeed.
  • PTSD App for Your Smartphone *Free* - PTSD Coach was designed for Veterans and military Service Members who have, or may have, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This app provides users with education about PTSD, information about professional care, a self-assessment for PTSD, opportunities to find support, and tools that can help users manage the stresses of daily life with PTSD. Tools range from relaxation skills and positive self-talk to anger management and other common self-help strategies. Users can customize tools based on their preferences and can integrate their own contacts, photos, and music. This app can be used by people who are in treatment as well as those who are not. PTSD Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.
