EL PASO - The City of El Paso recently launched the Veterans Economic Communities Initiative, an effort by the Department of Veterans Affairs to promote economic success for Veterans in partnership with local communities.

El Paso is one of the first 25 communities planned to launch in 2015, with 25 more slated for launch in 2016.

The campaign is part of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald's department-wide transformation called MyVA, which is dedicated to putting veterans at the center of everything the VA does.

The Veterans Economic Communities Initiative was launched on May 18 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas.
