State Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose and Assemblyman Gary Chiusano, all R-24, said New Jersey’s veterans received welcome news on Thursday with the announcement by Governor Christie that he has approved $195,000 to be used by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development in partnership with the New Jersey Building and Construction Trades Council’s Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) program. The New Jersey H2H program helps military personnel making the changeover from active duty to the civilian work force. The program also includes National Guard and reserve members who have civilian jobs but are looking for better employment opportunities.

“Those who serve in the military are owed a debt of gratitude by everyone who lives in this country,” said Oroho. “The Helmets to Hardhats program is one way New Jersey shows its appreciation for the sacrifices made by those in the armed services. At a time when many people are facing an uncertain future, the H2H program is an opportunity for veterans to find a good-paying job by completing a reputable training program.”
