Oklahoma Lt. Governor Todd Lamb is joining with Google to announce the launch of "Google for Veterans and Families", an online toolbox for veterans and returning soldiers.  

The announcement coincides with the return of Oklahoma's 45th Infantry from Afghanistan.

www.Googleforveterans.com is a website that was designed by the Google Veteran Network, the company's employee community of veterans, reservists, guardsman, family members and supporters, who have first-hand experience with the challenge of serving, coming home and transitioning into civilian life.

The site features tools that include Google's Resume Builder, a 3D Tour Builder, video transition tips and Vet Connect for Google +.

Google has also established a veterans channel at www.youtube.com/veterans where individuals can share their thanks by video with veterans who have served, or are serving, the United States at home and abroad. The videos are organized by state, which lets thankful Oklahomans communicate directly with Oklahoma vets, active-duty service men and women, and the soldiers of the 45th Infantry.

"I am proud to work with Google on this meaningful and thoughtful initiative to honor our service men and women, many of whom are far away from home," Lamb said. "In Oklahoma, we hold the highest respect and appreciation for our soldiers and officers who serve in the military. Our fellow Oklahomans who have volunteered to serve our country deserve our thanks for protecting our country."  

Google opened a data center in Pryor, Oklahoma in September 2011, where several veterans are employed.

"Google is part of the community here and we want to thank the men and women of the 45th, and their families, for their sacrifices over the past year," commented Mike Wooten, operations manager at the facility.  "We're glad we can leverage our technology to help members of the Oklahoma National Guard, and we hope all of the returning soldiers take advantage of the tools available through Google for Veterans and Families."
