  1. I live in Indiana, is there something I can do? I do meet the qualifications and experience with vets. I have personally going to homes with police officers to help and try to make it where the police doesn’t make things worse.

    Thank you and I hope I can help. I am 100% U/I T/P. I help vets every day to included getting homeless vets off the streets, housing, jobs etc…

    we need someone with some business and educational experience so we are asking for a degree but if the right person presents, then we will make an exception. Please fill out the form if you are in NC and interested. It is a volunteer position, so there’s that.

    Please explain to me what a degree has to do with helping a brother or sister through a serious problem.
    I am a vet and do not need a degree to talk to people. I did it for 17 years as an nco in the army.

  10. laura black says:

    Kirk, you can apply without a degree. We believe that the “job” is one that requires good networks and business skills. A degree can often help that. However a great candidate need not have a degree.
