Retired Marine General Peter Pace -- a NIAF Board Member and a proud Italian American -- is also devoting his time to Wall Street Warfighters, an organization that helps injured veterans find new careers in financial services.

As head of the Wall Street Warfighters board, Pace, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is spreading the word about this organization.
With its above average wages and minimum physical requirements, the finance industry offers an important new start for injured veterans, Pace says. Wall Street Warfighters' six-month program provides training and certification to help this process, including short-term and formal internships. Companies including Drexel Hamilton and Goldman Sachs have signed on.
