What is a Sponsor?
A sponsor is a guide who helps eliminate frustration when a returning service member or veteran re-enters civilian life after military service. Once the contact form is filled out, a sponsor will reach out and set up a meeting to find out the veteran’s concerns. The sponsor will then work with the veteran to reveal the many services and programs available in Brown County and the state of Wisconsin.
