Hispanic Group Offers Help to Vets Seeking Banking Jobs


Byline: John Fales, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Dear Sgt. Shaft,

On behalf of the Hispanic War Veterans of America, the first Hispanic all-veterans organization, we would like to thank you for your untiring efforts to improve the lives of our men and women in the military and our nation's veterans and their families. Sgt. Shaft, we salute you!

The HWVA, in partnership with the [National] Puerto Rican Coalition, Freddie Mac and the Mortgage Bankers Association, is presently involved in the "Welcome Home" project, which will provide no-cost training for military personnel for private jobs in the mortgage banking industry and then will provide a mechanism to help those newly trained individuals to look for jobs. For those interested in a banking career, please visit our Web site (www.hwva.org).

The [HWVA ] also welcomes the appointment of Ambassador Jim Nicholson as secretary of veterans affairs. I had the honor to work military and veterans coalitions for Ambassador Nicholson when he was the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC). In working for Jim Nicholson in the late 90s, I know that he was very proud of his military career, proud to be a West Point graduate and U.S. Army veteran. Very few people know that he was the first RNC chairman to start regular round-table meetings with the leadership of veterans organizations and to listen to their concerns and issues. President Bush made a perfect choice in appointing the right person for the job, someone who cares about the well-being of our veterans. It should also be mentioned here that in 1998 Secretary Nicholson was the first RNC chairman to fly the POW/MIA flag, along with "Old Glory," outside the RNC building, thus showing his concern for our nation's missing [in action] and prisoners of war.

Hispanic War Veterans of America

Dear Swede,

I hope that the Department of Veterans Affairs joins with your organization on your outreach to our vets. The VA has resources such as Vocational Rehabilitation and other educational programs that could prove very helpful in your outreach efforts. I wish Secretary Nicholson the very best in his efforts to serve our nation's veterans.
