After returning from service overseas, many veterans report have trouble reintegrating back into civilian society. Several organizations, including the non-profit Still Serving Veterans, are available to help returning vets get an education and find a good job.
Still Serving Veterans is a non-profit organization created in 2006 with the goal of getting veterans, including wounded warriors, back into the workforce of their communities.
According to an article from AL.com, Still Serving Veterans received a recent boost to their program when Lockheed Martin announced it would be donating approximately $10,000 to keep the service going. The program could use the boost too, considering there are 32,000 veterans in Madison County, and approximately 430,000 veterans across Alabama—many of whom rely on Veterans Disability Benefits to make ends meet.
The funds awarded by Lockheed Martin will be used to provide programs such as counseling, job placement, coaching, and veterans’ disability benefits assistance to those who are most in need across Alabama. Still Serving Veterans President, retired Col. Will Webb, stated Lockheed’s donation is invaluable in allowing the organization to continue its work in assisting veterans.
The Alabama Personal Injury Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers recognize the importance of programs like Still Serving Veterans in helping soldiers get back on their feet after returning home, and they may also be able to help anyone who was injured during their time serving the country.
