As was announced during SIOP’s inaugural #SIOPServingMilitary social media campaign during Veterans Day week last November, SIOP is doubling down on its commitment to veterans, current military personnel, and military family members by relaunching the Military and Veterans Initiative (MVI) as an official SIOP task force. The effort was originally founded in 2011 by Nathan Ainspan to leverage the unique skills of I-Os for the betterment of the veteran community. Soon after its start, Kristin Saboe joined as volunteer coordinator and eventually codirector of a collaborative effort of SIOP members offering career coaching to wounded and transitioning service members, as well as corporate consulting on the topic of veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce. As of this month, with support from President Talya Bauer and the Executive Board, SIOP is recognizing the group as a formal task force.

But what is the purpose or the actual functionality of a hashtag?

As anticipated by a majority of polls, Democrats took back the majority in the House of Representatives, and the Republicans made gains in the Senate in the mid-term elections on November 6.  With the House and Senate moving in opposite directions, the elections defied a simple takeaway message. Americans appeared more polarized along party lines than any time in modern history. With many moderate Republicans losing in the House and several moderate Democrats losing in the Senate, finding areas of common ground may be even more difficult in the next Congress as the House and Senate set up dueling agendas in the months ahead.
