A member of the United States House of representatives that is partly responsible for helping support veterans to find employment and jobs has introduced a number of bills for placement and training for Veterans.
Representative John Boozman of Arkansas is the ranking republican on the subcommittee for economic opportunity for the House Veteran?s Affairs Committee. Congress has been working to make the ability for Servicemembers making the transition from military service to civilian life a bit easier.
Many of the citizen soldiers are now preparing to leave the service, having received training and assistance while in service to their country. Many people will continue in either the Reserves or the Inactive Ready Reserve, and they have earned Veteran Benefits, as well as training and education supplemental opportunities with the Montgomery GI bill.
They often have the opportunity to attend college if they wish, or to receive assistance in finding employment, and it is an excellent opportunity as our citizen soldiers prepare to transition back to Civilian life.
One of the bills is HR 1170, a grant program that would help modify homes for disabled veterans, while another is grant program bill HR 1171 that would give further employment and job training for Veterans who qualify.
