VetForce1 helps veterans find employment

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - An event was held on the North Shore to help connect veterans with jobs.

VetForce1 is an organization that assists veterans as they transition from military life, back into civilian life.

They help put former service men and women through college, and upon graduation, connect them with potential employers.

Veteran and UTC student Jared Dickerson says the transition is not always an easy one. "It hasn't been too bad VetForce1 is here so they can help people transition into the job market."

30% of young veterans are currently unemployed.
