The nonprofit agency Still Serving Veterans has strengthened their partnership by signing an agreement with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) to maximize their effort to help as many veterans as possible.
In four short years, Still Serving Veterans has helped more than 4,000 wounded veterans and their families.
The global war on terror alone has accumulated more than 37,500 physically wounded soldiers as well as the more than 500,000 suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
ADRS Commissioner Cary Boswell said, “None of us are going to be able to do this all on our own. None of us have enough resources and people. To me, that’s why it’s so critical we do work together and coordinate these kinds of services for our veterans with disabilities.”
Still Serving Veterans strives to help assist veterans with their rehabilitation, recovery, and reintegration into civilian life. With the ADRS, the joint services are expanding to provide career assistance to veterans and push to increase a higher rate of disabled veterans in the workforce.
If you are currently looking for assistance within any of these categories visit the Warrior Gateway and search for service organizations in your area. If you know of any helpful organizations share them with others in our directory.

On June 4, 2010, the Fleet and Family Support Office, NNMC in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Chamber Foundation will host a career fair at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda. Our goal is to connect transitioning wounded, ill, and injured veterans with the best of employers. As a valued member of the Chamber, we invite you to participate in what will be an ideal place to meet and network with (and thank!) our country’s heroes.
The career fair will include a line-up of leading employers in various industries looking to fill a wide range of positions from entry-level to management. This would be an excellent opportunity for you to meet potential and well-deserving candidates for employment. Service members from Bethesda, Walter Reed, Ft. Belvoir, Ft. Meade, and Quantico will be participating in the event.

When transitioning out of the military, finding a job is usually a fairly important priority. It can also be challenging process. While the Warrior Gateway Directory makes finding service providers easy, we also want to make the job search easy.
Which is why we just launched a new feature, Warrior Gateway Job Search. This tool allows you to easily search for open job postings in your area. You can also tailor your search– your search results can be filtered by salary level, job type (full time, part time, contract, etc.), and whether the job is from an employer or recruiter.
