My name is Todd Clifton. I am a retired U.S. Navy Veteran. I am one of twenty Veteran Resources and Referral Specialist (VRRS) that represents the Texas Workforce Commission's - Texas Veterans Leadership Program (TVLP).
All Veteran Resources and Referral Specialist are U.S. Military Service Veterans helping our fellow brothers and sisters!
TVLP is committed to assisting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) Veterans.
The objective is to connect Veterans with resources that can provide basic needs and/or resources that can help Veterans attain personal and professional goals. TVLP is very proud of the fact that The State of Texas leads the nation in taking care of our Veterans!
My personal vision as The Veteran’s Resource and Referral Specialist, for the East Texas and Northeast Texas Region, is for every Military Veteran and eligible family member in local area to have access to long term and meaningful work. To bring that vision into reality, I aim to provide guidance to a full range of employment services to include the following:

In the months ahead, I look forward to sharing with you more detailed information about local, state and federal resources that are available for fellow Military Veterans!
