"Warriors 4 Wireless Launch," Joining Forces White House Event

This event has already occurred.
Eisenhower Executive Office Building
Washington, DC

Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett will moderate a panel discussion of wireless infrastructure executives for a White House event, sponsored by the First Lady Michelle Obama's Joining Forces initiative, to roll out Warriors 4 Wireless (W4W).

W4W is a new nonprofit that takes veterans with special electronic, photonic and other technical skills performed 200 or more feet in the air (up in towers) and re-trains them to meet a critical shortage of qualified workers in the wireless tower industry.  It will provide thousands of jobs for veterans that might otherwise go unfilled by industry. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will also address the group.
