Serve Our Co-ops; Serve Our Country is a national cooperative coalition created to honor and employ veterans, active military and their spouses. We do this by:

  • Honoring local veterans, active military and their spouses.
  • Raising awareness of the co-op network and co-op career opportunities.
  • Providing co-ops resources to attract, hire, onboard and retain veteran employees.

National November Veteran Engagement Campaign

Every November, NRECA invites you to post a photo of your veteran employees using the hashtag #VetsPowerUs. By leveraging the collective power of America's Electric Cooperatives, we show appreciation for our veteran employees while reinforcing our industry's commitment to hiring veterans and highlighting the range of exciting careers at a co-op.

It's easy to participate! Post a photo of a veteran co-op employee to social media on or around Veteran's Day with the hashtag #VetsPowerUs and the information below. Check out all the wonderful photos co-ops across the country shared during the 2018 campaign!

And, don't forget to follow NRECA on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter because we will be sharing and retweeting your photos, too!

For example only (not an actual post):
Employee's Name, Military Branch
Current position/department at co-op, Name of co-op, City, State

This campaign is a part of the NRECA's Serve Our Co-ops; Serve Our Country initiative. For questions about how you can participate, contact Desiree Dunham at or 703-907-5995.
