Here is an organization that is really near to my heart, as I’m sure it is to many of you (so excuse my lack of overt humor on this one). Helmets to Hard Hats is an organization that is committed to helping retiring and honorably discharged service men and women find work in the construction trades. Between my love for building and my full time job on an air base, I have had the pleasure of working with a number of wonderful men and women, some of the finest that our country has to offer. According to Helmets to Hard Hats, over a quarter million service men and women are discharged annually from the military. And as we have only recently finished pulling out of Iraq and we begin to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, that number may increase. These troops will need to find jobs, but since the job market is flooded these days, finding a job can be tough even for highly trained men and women.
