Virginia Governor Terence McAuliffe

“The U.S. shipyard industrial base in Virginia is vital to America’s national and economic security. The Commonwealth leads the nation in shipbuilding with more than 63,000 jobs worth more than $5.5 billion, which is why we are so happy to welcome the Military to Maritime program to Norfolk. Connecting Virginia’s veterans with good opportunities in our thriving domestic shipbuilding and maritime industry, which can benefit from their unique skills and training, is a top priority. Veterans can play a central role in our world-class workforce and help our companies grow as part of the new Virginia economy.”
