The Business View – November 2017 / Veterans Resources

 

The Business View asked Brad Israel, vice chairman of military affairs on the Mobile Area Chamber’s board of directors’ executive committee, to provide a list of some of the resources available to veterans, both those leaving the service and those entering the workforce. Israel is a former U.S. Army Special Forces detachment commander and he remains active in support of local veterans.

 

As our Veterans return home from combat, transition out of the service or retire and reintegrate into our communities, there are no better men and women fit to lead and add value to organizations and our communities at large. As President George W. Bush says, “These warriors have a Ph.D. in life. It should be our mission to recruit, retain and promote job opportunities for Veterans in Mobile because our city will be better for having them, their diverse backgrounds and experience from across the globe. A business owner can teach them the specifics of their business, and then watch a tenfold return on their investment because of the work ethic, initiative and grit that these capable candidates possess.”

 

 

Here are just some of the many resources available to support the area’s Veterans, found on the Chamber’s website.
