    I have just began to explore for help for veterans, as I would like to start a new career path. My story is a bit long. I know it would be fantastic to attend this event, but cannot. I plan a vigorous search once my seasonal employment ends on June 7th. I am hoping I can still find a helping hand even though I can not attend this particular employment boot camp. I know there are so many great oppurtunities out there for me. I just need a little guidance, as sometimes this new cyber world can be a little overwhelming. I sometimes think I just need to find the right place to start.
    I think finding this website was a great first step!

    Currently I am a school bus driver and a food services person because it provides a roof and food for my children and I, but now I am ready to start a new path. I find myself everyday saying that I am cabable of so much more. Even though I do love both my current jobs!

        I know this event is perfect for me at this stage of my life, so I believe it is best for me to take a day off of work to attend! So I will see you there! I’m very excited!
