Any unemployed vets here?

This might help: New VA / Dept of Labor program called VRAP to start 7/1/12
Must be between 35 & 60, unemployed and the usual other stuff (no bad conduct discharges etc)
$1,473/month for 12 months for vocation training.

Re: Any unemployed vets here?

I'm a (foreign) vet, and work full time, so this isn't for me.

But Thx Dave for keeping an eye out for us.

Re: Any unemployed vets here?

Thanks for the heads up Dave. I will keep an eye peeled for some who might qualify and be in need. Seems like all my Viet Nam vet Buds are too old and the young Hero's seem to be in high demand in the Private Sector. Know many of the latest crop from Iraq and Afghanistan are fast filling up the doughnut muncher profession. They can kill a deer with a .30-30 at two thousand yards..jog twenty miles without inhaling..and mess folks up real bad bare handed..etc. I would not like to be a bad guy with the current generation of Gendarmes. Did you post this info on FB?

Whats a FB? But spread it as far as you can. I think the program is limited to 99,000 but that memory is hazy.
