You Can Do More Than Say "Thank You For Your Service" to a Veteran. You Can Put Veterans to Work on Your Next Shoot

The newly launched, not-for-profit organization Vets2Set makes it simple to find PAs throughout the United States using a zip code search. Veterans bring discipline, skill, and team spirit to any project, and employers gain the satisfaction of knowing they have provided an honest day’s work for someone who has sacrificed for others.

More than 300,000 veterans are unemployed. Tragically, 22 veterans commit suicide every day. With little effort on the employer’s part, a veteran can be helped in transition into civilian life.

The goal of Vets2Set is to make it easy to bring two veterans to every set. The organization operates a proprietary database providing contact details for available veterans and a list of their special skills and interests. Production companies hire and pay the veteran the same way they would any PA, without an impact on budget. Neither the veteran nor the production company pays to be enrolled in the database, which is supported solely by donations.

Sign up now at and join the growing list of production companies and other media organizations finding skilled employees who have earned an opportunity members of the AICP can provide them.

Created through the inspiration of David Cohen and Peter Friedman, who bring decades of experience in the production and advertising industries, Vets2Set is growing with the expertise in veteran employment affairs provided by retired Col. Maureen Weigl. The organization will celebrate its formal launch in New York City on November 6, hosted by Samsung USA.
