MADISON, Wis.—May 20, 2019—At WPS Health Solutions, helping veterans has always been a part of our mission. WPS was founded in 1946 in part to help World War II veterans returning to Wisconsin get the affordable health care that they needed.
We remain committed to those who serve our country. At WPS, hiring veterans is a priority. As of last count, we had 125 on our team. We wanted to share some of their stories with you.

Q: Why did you join the military? A: I was in seventh grade during the attacks on 9/11. That night I stood in my living room feeling hurt, helpless, and angry. I told my family that night I was going to join the service when I turned 18.
Fun Fact: I have two dogs. One is a border collie/corgi mix named Sassy and one is a cocker spaniel named Nitschke. I am also a diehard Packers fan.
