Training program wants to help veterans successfully transition back into civilian society
Detroit, MI- As we remember the sacrifices of those who have lost their lives protecting the freedoms we too often take for granted, let us not forget about our returning veterans. According to a report recently released by the Veteran’s Administration roughly 20 veterans a day commit suicide.
More than a third of those deaths are caused by the stress associated with personal or financial problems. Many of the veterans currently returning to the United States after serving several tours of duty in Iraq and/or Afghanistan are finding that transitioning back into their civilian lives is far more difficult than they imagined.
Moreover, veterans that have sustained injuries as a result of their service often find that:
* Their injuries have changed their life forever
* They will have to adjust both their personal and professional lives to accommodate their new reality
This has forced many disabled veterans to leave their old careers behind and look for a career more suited to their current situation.
A new training program in Metro-Detroit wants to introduce disabled veterans to the plethora of opportunities available in the wireless industry. Chapter 31 disabled veterans who are interested in starting a new career as a cable installer or broadband technician are encouraged to contact us ASAP. Students that successfully complete the program typically earn between $12-$18 dollars an hour after five short weeks of training.
