WEST GROVE The Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce held its 7th Annual Inspirational Breakfast on Tuesday, May 24th, at The Mendenhall Inn. Brigadier General (PA) Maureen Weigl joined as the Keynote Speaker, with 100+ members in attendance.  As Deputy Adjutant General for Veterans Affairs, General Weigl’s passion for connecting Veterans to services has become her purpose, after retiring from her 25-year career in the Army.  Her commitment to “serve something bigger than herself” is evident, and her list of accomplishments and involvement inspiring.

Brig. Gen. (PA) Weigl supervises the administration of state veterans’ programs, reintegration and outreach, and veteran initiatives for nearly 800,000 veterans and their dependents. She also oversees the operation of the Commonwealth’s six Veteran homes to provide long term care homes free of charge (to those who qualify) & combat homelessness. Her heart is clearly inspired by “not forgetting the moments & the people,” as this was intricately woven throughout her presentation “Together We Serve.”

General Weigl spoke about behavioral mental health needs, reassuring resources are available and it’s a matter of linking up nonprofits and people to care.  Services range from peer support with other Veterans to counseling, therapy, medication, or a combination of these options. The goal is to help Veterans take charge of their treatment and live a full and meaningful life.

General Weigl’s service and dedication speaks volumes about her character and care for people; however, her passions still called her when she listened to the spouses of Veterans.  For example, when they spoke of the challenges faced when dressing, she partnered with clothing manufacturers to make adjustable clothing for Veterans and those with prosthetic limbs.

General Weigl launched her own woman-owned/service-disabled Veteran owned small business, ProRec Resource Solutions, LLC where she provides government consulting, talent management and recruiting services.  Her vision is to ensure ProRec Resource Solutions, LLC continues to serve clients exceptionally but also to ensure Veterans find meaningful careers.  General Weigl also serves on boards for nonprofit agencies, like Vets2Set, where she helps Veterans and their beneficiaries determine their needs, find resources that meets those needs and connect Veterans with those resources.  For more information about Vet Resources visit:
