V.E.T.S./Vets2Techs “Operation Handshake” employment program connected over 80 service members with energy employers seeking quality candidates. Soldiers from the 854th Engineering Battalion FRSA Reserve Center located in Saugerties NY, discussed available career opportunities with employment representatives from L.P. Transportation, Paraco Gas, and Mirabito Energy Products. This engagement enabled the attending companies the opportunity to witness the unit’s monthly training events, speak with service members seeking employment, and demonstrate their company’s commitment to the employment of the Armed Forces. The V.E.T.S./Vets2Techs team thanks the employment representatives from L.P. Transportation, Paraco Gas, and Mirabito Energy Products for attending the event and supporting our mission.
