The American Legion on May 29 sent letters of support to Rep. Tammy Duckworth (IL) and Sen. Tim Kaine (VA), giving our organization’s support for H.R. 1796 and S. 700, companion legislation entitled the Troop Talent Act of 2013. This measure would bolster efforts to streamline the process of obtaining certifications and occupational licenses and help veterans put to use skill learned in the military. Continuing high levels of unemployment and ongoing troop withdrawals underscore the need to build job opportunities for returning veterans. [Resolution 326-2012]
