About a year after Congressional Rs voted down yet another jobs program for veterans, President Obama announces a pilot program for training veterans for employment in the solar power industry.
... The solar industry has long taken a leading role in hiring veterans, employing more service members than any other sector in the U.S. Building on this tradition, the SunShot Initiative’s Solar Instructor Training Network – which aims to train 50,000 new solar installers in total by 2020, some of who will be veterans – is partnering with up to three military bases to create a veterans solar job training pilot project this fall.
The new training project will connect up to 30 motivated, tech-savvy military personnel at each base with SunShot-supported accredited solar training institutions. Ultimately, lessons learned from this first successful pilot will enable the Energy Department and military branches to expand solar training access to interested veterans, tapping into the Department’s nearly 400 solar training partner institutions nationwide...Oh, no, no one supports our troops like elected Republicans and those who elect them. Other than, you know, supporting them.
It's yet another example of the difference between what the president and those who criticize him, are about. That the Foxolimbeckians can keep the lie going is simply amazing.
