Forward March Operation Outreach

FMI Community Outreach Logo
Forward March Inc. (FMI) proudly presents for the New Year Forward March Operation Outreach. FMI has been working hard to help veterans through our non profit programs Professional Women Veterans Coalition, Maui Warrior Appreciation Vacation and through our partnership with Fred Astaire Dance Studios Dancing with Our Heroes. We have been hard at work connecting companies and veterans through job fairs and employment networking events. Through Dancing with Our Heroes we have helped to raise over $300,000 for the Fisher House Foundation and the USO.

Veteran Education Equals Opportunity – TODAY!

educationToday’s veterans are among the most educated, technically savvy, and diverse group of veterans in our nation’s history. Today’s veterans even, at their lowest levels of rank, have experience in working in diverse environments, putting leadership training to use in the workplace, working in trusted environments, and communicating clearly and directly. Veterans transitioning out of the military today have certifications and training in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to, truck driving, mechanics, engineering, IT and computer networking, IT security, and much more.

Today 82.8% of military officers have a bachelors degree or higher and about 30% of veterans over the age of 25 have a bachelors degree or higher. 

Many veterans wonder what they can do for a career if they do not have an education or enough education. There are actually many options. With the military educational money that veterans have there are opportunities in traditional colleges as well as other educational programs. Traditional colleges generally have a veteran representative that can help veterans navigate the application process and access their military education money.

Lifehacker just released a great article that can introduce veterans to just some of what they can do with just an associates degree. Check it out here…

If you are not sure if you should go for that two year degree / associate’s degree then read this article over at Military.com – 3 Reasons to Get Your Associate Degree

Check out some of these great opportunities. While they are in the San Antonio area they can give you the details you need to go and look for something in your area that is similar. Programs such as these exist in many cities across the U.S.

Veterans who wish to go down the road of entrepreneurship have a lot of opportunities today to learn, get mentored and find proven methods of business success. If you are interested in joining the ranks of veterans who own their own business then you will definitely be interested in some of the outstanding opportunities available to you right now. Many of these opportunities are free for veterans! While many of these opportunities are in the San Antonio area we encourage veterans to look into their local Chamber, SBA, and university locations to find out if programs like this are being offered in their location.

We posted a while back that the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce is “re-booting” their entrepreneurial boot-camp for military veterans. You can learn more about that here.

Veterans who want to join the SBA and start down the track of entrepreneurship shouldcheck out the latest article on the San Antonio Business Journal site. The SBA is extending their fee waiver program for veterans through 2015!
