National Hire a Veteran Day, a day that is observed every year on July 25th, encourages employers to consider veterans in their employment strategies and to fill their open positions. This day provides awareness and serves as a platform to show that our veterans are qualified and trained and looking for jobs within the civilian workforce.

Our bodies are comprised mostly of water and maintaining the proper balance of water is important for our systems to function properly. Staying properly hydrated is important.
