Vets can find financial, health, career assistance
In the past few years, Heather Watson has seen an increase in military veterans enrolling in classes at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove. As the transfer/veterans adviser at the college, it’s her job to provide advice and help them sort through paperwork.
“A lot of the students want to go into criminal justice,” Watson said. “That’s the closest thing to what they have done. We offer career workshops and career counseling here.”
The Kane County Chronicle is examining the issue of the challenges faced by returning military veterans. Some veterans say it can be difficult to adjust to life outside the military – particularly when they are trying to find a job or continued their education – but there are services and groups available to help. The program at Waubonsee is among them.
