Valley Veteran Seeks Employment for Spouse through New VA Program
WESLACO – A newly unveiled agreement between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership is set to expand opportunities for military families.
Sacrifice doesn’t end on the battlefield for many veterans; family members also struggle to make ends meet back home.
KRGV’s Frank McCaffrey spoke with 10-year veteran Jennifer Garcia, whose husband recently lost his job.
“I try to help him keep optimistic,” she says. “From one income, we can go to two incomes… Living paycheck to paycheck it’s hard, but we manage somehow.”
Mike Gonzalez, spokesperson for Workforce Solutions, says this new deal will connect military spouses with affiliated employers.
Texas Workforce Solutions will be hosting a Red, White and You, a job fair specifically designed for veterans and their spouses, on Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Mission Events Center. For more information visit their website.
