The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Employment & Training Workforce Centers offer employment and training services to Veterans from all services on a Priority of Service basis.
All local Wagner-Peyser and Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act Workforce Center staff provides career guidance, job search, resume writing, skills assessments, labor market information, supportive services and training support to all eligible Veterans. To register online, go to wyomingatwork.com.
Veterans or eligible spouses who qualify for Priority of Service receive precedence to general services, open position notification and referrals to training.
Veteran Priority of Service means the right of eligible covered individuals to take precedence over eligible non-covered individuals in obtaining services. The covered person receives access to the service or resource earlier in time than the non-covered person. If the service or resource is limited, the covered person receives access to the service or resource instead of or before an equally qualified non-covered person.
Covered individuals include a veteran or eligible spouse.
A Veteran, for purposes of Priority of Service, is a person who served in the active military, naval or air service, and who was discharged or released from there under conditions other than dishonorable, as specified in 38 U.S.C. 101(2). Active service includes full-time duty in the National Guard or a Reserve component, other than full-time duty for training purposes.
An eligible spouse is defined as the spouse of any of the following:
- Any veteran who died of a service-connected disability
- Any member of the Armed Forces serving on active duty who, at the time of application for the Priority, is listed in one or more of the following categories and has been so listed for a total of more than 90 days.
- Missing in action
- Captured in line of duty by a hostile force
- Forcibly detained or interned in line of duty by a foreign government or power
- Any veteran who has a total disability resulting from a service-connected disability, as evaluated by the Department of Veterans Affairs
- Any veteran who died while a disability was in existence

The Transition Assistance Program is mandatory for transitioning Active Duty, Guard and Reserve military members to assure each member has made adequate preparations for a post-military career. Contact F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne at (307) 773-1845 to attend a monthly meeting.
