Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
Today, Warrior Gateway announces the G.I. Network: A Nation of Support. One Network, the largest free network available designed to connect hundreds of thousands government programs and vetted non-profits, with the millions of veterans in the US.
Available in January 2012, the G.I. Network will connect veterans and their families with more than 220,000 government and non-profit organizations as well as with each other. The G.I. Network has been piloted over the last year with several Warrior Gateway non-profit and government partners to provide a collection of free tools and services to help veterans and military families find and connect with education, employment, health and wellness programs.
“Warrior Gateway has a history of providing innovative technology solutions designed to help veterans and their families,” said Devin B. Holmes, CEO of Warrior Gateway. “Veterans tell us that there are too many disconnected resource websites. The G.I. Network is the game changer that solves this problem. It provides a solution to network all those resource websites and help people connect in a meaningful way. Developed in response to the Joining Forces initiative, the G.I. Network helps each of us connect with veterans and their families in our communities.”
The G.I. Network will launch in January 2012. For more information about participating and to be notified of the public launch, please visit: http://www.GINetwork.org.
