NYSE Celebrates 2nd Anniversary of its Veteran Associate Program Veteran Associate Participants to Ring The NYSE Closing BellŪ
For Release: 03 Jul 13
On Friday, July 5, military veterans will celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the NYSE Veteran Associate Program. 
This year's summer program expands with 28 military veterans participating in a 10-week session dedicated to providing U.S. military veteran's with a valuable hands-on business experience. Training and resources are designed to promote professional skill development, allowing for a successful transition from the military to the private sector.
The Veteran Associate participants hail from across the United States and are selected from numerous veteran organizations and schools, including Wall Street Warfighters' Foundation Financial and Trading Education Program, Four Block, the Military Student organizations of Columbia University, Fordham University and NYU, Per Scholas and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA).  This year, the class size has nearly doubled. The inaugural Veteran Associates program in 2012 had 15 participants, six of whom have continued with NYSE Euronext in either full-time or contract positions
