Vets Helping Vets

 

AMVETS Post 181 is carrying out our National AMVETS directive for Vets to help Vets. With an ever-increasing number of returning combat Veterans our public services have been taxed beyond the  limits of their resources.  The Veterans Administration strives to provide the best care possible, but there has arisen the need for those have been in the military to serve our returning brothers and sisters by delivering help as soon as we receive a request from a Vet, their family, or another organization.  AMVETS Post 181 goes beyond the doors of the Post to provide a community service that Vets can receive without a lot of public notice.  We help Vets find support they need when they need it. By directing Vets to services they are not aware of they can save time and get to better lives quickly.  We continue to keep our desire to serve Vets a daily goal.

Employment Assistance - H2H

 

H2H is a very important service that is available to all Honorably Discharges Veterans, their spouses and dependents over age 18. H2H stands for Hero 2 Hired, which is DOD funded program that employs contractors from IT and Human Resources backgrounds to help run and maintain a website that helps link veterans with employers looking to hire veterans. H2H also vets employers nationwide who wish to hire veterans, they evaluate these employers to verify they are reliable and fair in their recruiting and employment of veterans and their dependents.

 

Another great feature this website provides is the easy to use feature of searching available job listings with the ability to search jobs by inputting MOS (Military Occupation Specialty), i.e. if you were an 88M in the Army or a 3531 in the Marine Corps. You can type in your MOS in the job search and it will bring up all jobs related to you MOS nationwide. Then you can even break it down to a specific location by typing in your desired State, City or zip code and it will bring up all of the job listings in that area related to you MOS. As some of you are aware that we as a post wanted to provide employment assistance to veterans in the Kansas City area, as we have been looking how we could do this one major concern came to mind.

 

The vetting process to rule out fraudulent or other wise unsuitable employers to prevent any abuse of our veterans we help with employment assistance. ​As I have mentioned H2H solves this problem for us. I have listed the H2H website link below so you can visit it and pass it on. I urge all of you to look into this websites services and ask you all to go to this website and create a profile, even if you are currently employed. You never know in todays economy if you may need their services not to mention this will help you pass on information about this site and it's service to fellow veterans.
