"Our U.S. troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are skilled, disciplined, and ready to work -- yet they're facing one of the toughest job markets in U.S. history," said John A. Politi, Jr., the executive director of the Jewelers for Veterans Foundation. "We are grateful for the support offered us by the New York State Jewelers Association to assist our outreach to the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces."

Mike Wilson, NYSJA's president and owner of Wilson & Sons Jewelers, added, "We welcome any opportunity to help our returning U.S. veterans with the kind of training and employment assistance that Jewelers for Veterans provides. The more companies that attend our golf outing, fund sponsorships, or donate to the auction, the larger the donation NYSJA can make to Jewelers for Veterans."

The Jewelers for Veterans Foundation connects U.S. military veterans, abled or disabled, with training and employment in the jewelry industry. Its mission is to address the high rate of unemployment  among returning veterans by offering solutions within the industry.
