(April 25, 2014) – Finding jobs for veterans.
That’s the purpose behind a new website launched by the federal government this week. First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden visited Fort Campbell, Ky., Thursday to launch www.eBenefts.va.gov.
The website provides one-stop shopping for veterans as they transition from the battlefield to civilian life. It comes as the U.S. winds down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bringing thousands of veterans home and in need of work.
“Every service member, every veteran and every military member will have access to a new online tool that will revolutionize how you find jobs in both the public and private sector,” Obama said.
The website allows veterans to build resumes and learn how to apply the skills they’ve used in the military to the private sector. They’ll also be able to get job training at the click of a mouse.
