At WPS Health Solutions, helping veterans has always been a part of our mission. WPS was founded in 1946 in part to help World War II veterans returning to Wisconsin get the affordable health care that they needed.

We remain committed to those who serve our country. At WPS, hiring veterans is a priority. We wanted to share some of their stories with you.

Q: Why did you join the military?
A: I joined the Army to help get out of the debt I accrued as a teacher, and I wanted to experience the military lifestyle along with other cultures.

Fun Fact: During my time in the Army, I traveled to different countries and loved to try local cuisine. I’ll try any food once. The grossest thing I’ve eaten thus far was a silkworm in China! Two big thumbs and two big toes!
