Trade Jobs

As Gregory of MilitaryConnection.com points out, the post-9/11 GI Bill doesn’t have to be limited to university use. Veterans can take advantage of it to learn trades, such as plumbing and welding. Search results on Military.com bring up 389 painter jobs across the country, 163 plumber jobs, 519 welder jobs, and the site’s maximum 1,000 listings for HVAC jobs.
