On November 6, 2013, Wayne McFadden, a Quality Assurance Engineer at Dakota and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, was an invited guest at the 2013 Veterans Day Salute sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. Mr. McFadden participated as part of a select group of veterans who have successfully transitioned into the workforce after the conclusion of their military careers.
The event honored veterans for their service and urged employers to hire veterans and service members. The event was attended by Thomas E. Perez, the U.S. Secretary of Labor, and Sergeant Dakota Meyer, recipient of the Medal of Honor, among many others.
The event was held at the Great Hall of the U.S. Department of Labor. More information on the event can be found at http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/vets/VETS20132145.htm .
