On Monday, Veteran’s Day, here in America, we honor those who serve in the US armed forces. The SOLIDWORKS Military Veterans Program (MVP) allows US veterans to obtain SOLIDWORKS for educational purposes through the SolidWorks Military Veterans Education store.
US Veterans can obtain a copy of SOLIDWORKS at a discounted rate and a DD214 form.
This year, the SOLIDWORKS EDU team got to visit Workshops for Warriors in San Diego California, an organization that is rebuilding America’s advanced manufacturing workforce by a rigorous skills based training program with the latest technology. These Veterans work hard to become highly skilled and certified in MasterCam, Welding, SOLIDWORKS and other job skills.
The complete story is here.
In 2009, a young Veteran came to us and asked for a copy of SOLIDWORKS.
He wanted to keep his skills up for his employer during deployment. Months later, we received a flag flown for SolidWorks. We have received many thank you cards and plaques of the years from students – but this was an honor I never expected.
I have to thank my colleagues Chris and Adam for making the MVP program happen. Marie
