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!

That Moment, When It All Hits You, And You Snap

Good evening Marines, how does that headline sentence above make you feel? Any triggers in it? Feel a tightening in your gut and does your blood pressure increase a bit? Maybe a lot?

All Marines have a pack they are carrying. We are Marines after all. It is part of what our Service is. We haul the load, carry the pack, do what needs to be done. Some loudly, others silently. In this article from the Reboot Camp section of the Military Times, they cover what one veteran Marine did when all of his duty, service, and sacrifice culminated in something that could have had far different results had he not followed the path that opened up in front of him in that time of his life. Excellent transition story. Many are in this type of moment now. This is for you.
