The 919 Jobs Update : VA Aquisitions

Semper Fi veteran, active, and reservist Marines! Ahoy Fleet Marine Force Corpsmen and FMF Chaplain!

Oooh-rah! To all of our motivated Auxiliaries, Associates, Affiliates, non-member veterans, non-veterans, and any and all who support them, I say, “well met”!

Welcome to the 1st 919 Jobs Update!

The 919 Jobs Update is my opportunity in the role of a Marine Corps League, Marine For Life Network Liaison, to share potential employment opportunities with Marines who are transitioning from Active Service back to civilian life.

Once a Marine, always a Marine is not a permission granted by any authority, it was an idea. We Marines are keeping it a fact, by virtue of our Service. Our Honor, Loyalty, and Commitment to that Service.

Help us keep “it real”, with substantial benefits within the framework of social, professional, and education environments. If anyone knows of a Marine coming to the area from active duty, get on your smart phone, or whatever is near, and make sure they know where we are, or how to find us. That there are benefits and help for them to be successful as a civilian.

There are challenges in making contact with these warriors; somewhere between their release and our notification of their arrival, the line of communication gets broken. Most of our efforts online are a part of our struggle to close this comms gap to Serve our brothers and sisters. We welcome any information that helps us to achieve our goal of connecting face to face with discharged personnel within the 1st 2 weeks of their arrival in the area.

Thanks and in the meantime, here are some positions with the VA!
