The expansion and enhancement of financial education and access programs for veterans is a top priority for Treasurer McCord.  He recognizes the obligation all Americans have to aid and support our veterans, who so bravely defended our freedoms, as he told the Wall Street Warfighters Foundation at an event in late April 2009.  Wall Street Warfighters is an organization that recruits, trains, and places disabled veterans in financial industry careers, and Treasurer McCord shares this commitment to help all veterans regain or retain their financial footing. 

Veterans and their families face unique economic challenges during their deployment and upon their return to civilian life, and these challenges are exacerbated by the recession.  To that end, Treasurer McCord will partner with and expand current programs and innovate new ways to support and serve veterans.
