Washington Military Transition Council

13,000 veterans per year through 2016, 8,000 per year from JBLM, expect to make Washington their home.

A battery of legal support (Department of Army Executive Order 054-12, Governor’s Executive Order 13-1, State HB 1432 and Congressional VOW to Hire Veterans Act), provides the framework for concerted action to meet the need.
The Washington Military Transition Council has a vision to ensure that separating service members transition seamlessly into civilian employment, training, and business opportunities as well as creating a sustainable cross-jurisdictional, ‘linked systems’ approach in Washington State that can be replicated across the nation.

Alfie Alvarado serves as the Director of YOUR Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs, the statewide advocate for the benefits and services veterans and their families earned.

Alfie served 22 years on active duty retiring in August 1993 as Command Sergeant Major of Madigan Army Medical Center and Troop Command, Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

She serves on boards of directors of local and national associations and has received local, state and national awards including the Governor’s Distinguished Management Leadership Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award for women in the military from the Young Women’s Christian Association.

November 7, 12 - 1:30 p.m., with Rotary Club of Tacoma featuring the John Anderson Military Citizen of the Year
