The 2014 Marine Corps Muster was held at the VA Palo Alto on Feb 8th, 2014 and served over 1,000 Marines and their family members. Over 720 Marines were vested into the VA Healthcare System in one day, and they were then introduced to almost 100 employers and community partners, resulting in a number of Marines being hired on the spot.
What some of the attendees had to say:
I was overwhelmed with the awesome prospects that were in attendance. My partner and I recruited 7 marines at the muster yesterday with well over 50 interested leads. Airstreams would be honored to attend more of your musters in the near future. Thanks again Maureen for the invite and look forward to seeing you soon.

I wanted to thank you again for inviting the Volt Military Heroes Program to participate at the IRR Muster on Saturday. It was a huge success for the Marines and it provided us an opportunity to spread the word to more deserving Marines looking for employment.
Looking forward to support you and the Wine Country Marines again in the future!

Thank you so much for your hospitality on Saturday! We had a great experience at the muster. I've been to many megamusters, but yours was by far the most energetic, friendly group I've encountered. To do what you did so smoothly, despite the weather, speaks volumes about your capabilities as a team!
