Come enjoy Fall racing with us and learn how to “Bet on a Vet” The Kentucky Industry Liaison Group cordially invites you to Bet on a Vet with us Friday, November 4, 2016 at historic Churchill Downs. Held just one week prior to Veterans Day, the day’s focus will be how to attract and retain military veterans in the workplace.
Presentations will include:
Bryan Anderson, a Gulf War veteran who, in 2005, was injured by an improvised explosive device (IED) that resulted in the loss of his left hand and both legs. He completed 13 months of rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Hospital and was awarded the prestigious Purple Heart by the United States Armed Forces. Bryan is an author, actor and spokesperson and will share his inspirational story pertaining to his service to our country, his experiences as a combat-injured veteran and his work with USA Cares. To learn more about Bryan, check out this feature from The Today Show.
