As Director of Veterans and Active Duty Affairs, I have to read a lot of articles in a wide range of publications in order to keep up on issues affecting those who selflessly defend our rights and freedoms. Just last week I was thumbing through the October 27th issue of Air Force Times when I came across an article by Karen Jowers (kjowersmilitarytimes [dot] com) entitled “Landmark employment law for troops turns 20”.

Jason has gone the extra distance and made a short video explaining the process that he went through while starting his own volunteer service. You can view the video by following the link here:
