Orange County – Vets Helping Vets Work Study Program
Maybe it’s patriotism or pride. Maybe it’s the shared experiences of being in the military but it seems like veterans — even those who never served together — share a common bond. There is a depth of understanding and camaraderie. Maybe that’s one reason why in an ordinary government building in Orange County, something very special is happening.
Younger veterans who are still trying to find their own place in the world after their military service are getting much-needed work experience by helping other veterans from as far back to World War II get the benefits to which they are entitled. And while it’s a County-run program, the Veterans Administration (VA) picks up the cost.
