Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 6, 2017 03:52 PM
From: Senator Randy Vulakovich and Sen. Jay Costa
To: All Senate members
Subject: Military Service Opportunity Month - May
In the near future, we plan to introduce a resolution designating May as “Military Service Opportunity Month” in Pennsylvania.

This resolution is designed to encourage our state and educational institutions to recognize the U.S. Military for its positive impact on the Pennsylvania educational system and its students. The U.S. Military offers personal advancement for all students within the Commonwealth through education programming, starting at the high school level. Military recruiters provide training in areas such as leadership development, anti-bullying, anti-drug, patriotism and programs that enhance the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum. Recruiters offer physical fitness training to students to fight the obesity epidemic in the United States. It is also the mission of the U.S. Military to continue to offer outstanding career and educational opportunities to all students who seek to serve the nation. Upon completion of service and using the training supplied by the U.S. Military, members are academically and professionally prepared to provide a multitude of career services to our state; including, but not limited to, medical services, advanced cyber security, law enforcement services, comprehensive legal services, a full range of engineering skills, satellite technology, communications and network development, and logistical and administrative support.

Please join us in recognizing the U.S. Military for the contributions it has made and will continue to make to the Pennsylvania educational system and its students by designating May, 2017 as Military Service Opportunity Month in Pennsylvania. If you have any questions, please contact Nate Silcox in Senator Vulakovich's Office.
