Veteran community

Mission: Home

We believe everyone has two missions in life, to serve your country and to make this country worth serving. As a military family you have completed the first; let us help you accomplish the second in Greater Green Bay.

Your transition from military life to civilian life can be challenging for you and your whole family. We want to support you through the uncertainty of transition by connecting you to all that Greater Green Bay has to offer for those who have served and their families.

In Wisconsin, our shared values match your values. That means you have the opportunity to live and work in a community that represents you and your family.

Centrally located in North America, Greater Green Bay is a place where veterans thrive. With the fourth-largest veteran population by density in the state – and the fastest growing veteran population – this is clearly a community that other veterans recognize as home.

"People want to know your stories, people genuinely want to know what you did and they want to thank you for your service, not that we need it, but it's nice to know that this community truly cares."

Veteran ready

Many communities may be veteran-friendly, welcoming you into their ranks. But we’ve made the extra effort to create a community that is veteran ready.

What does that mean?

Veteran ready means companies who hire veterans not only appreciate the special skills you bring to the workforce but also understand, recognize – and remove – the potential challenges.

Veteran ready means that Greater Green Bay has developed relevant resources and support systems to guide you through the transition process.

Veteran ready means our focus is on you and your needs rather than our own. We help you reach your career goals by supporting your education and/or entrepreneurial aspirations.

Veteran ready means our benefits are better and your opportunities are greater here.

"I saw Green Bay as to where it's big enough that you have more options and you can expand who you are as both a person and a professional, but yet it still had that small, hometown feeling. Like, if you wanted to go and hang out with a group of friends, they were always there."
