Hickory welcomes military veterans and their families, and offers support and resources for those transitioning back to civilian life through HKY4Vets. Since its inception in 2016, HKY4Vets (Hickory4Vets), a public-private partnership of companies, government agencies, nonprofits, and veterans, has worked to build a sustainable model for our community and establish a plan of work based on three overarching priorities: Awareness, Advocacy, and Access. We desire to become one of the most "veteran-ready" communities in the entire country.
