I would like to take this opportunity to thank President Jim Burke for appointing me to this Chair. I will try to keep our members up to date on Veterans Affairs.
Continuing from a previous report on Home Depot; as I reported, Home Depot has been very supportive of our GIs and their families. They provide transfers for a GI and his family members to another store near their new assignment. The company recently launched a new website highlighting its commitment to our GIs and their families www.homedepotmilitary.com and has offered a free Military skills Translator tool for some time now. The tool is designed to translate and match an applicant’s military skills to positions that might offer the best career fit.
THE ROSIE NETWORK
If you are a military spouse or veteran entrepreneur the Rosie Network wants to help you. It is a non-profit funded by military spouses and U.S. Veterans, active, retired or reserve. Starting this September, the Rosie Network at www.TheRosieNetwork.Org will launch a free web-based search tool which will enable the public to easily locate products and services provided by military spouses or Veteran-owned companies.
Please remember all our Veterans in your prayers. God Bless America
