United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment Transition Program

The United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment (WWR) Transition Program invited Able Forces to be a part of the 2019 Wounded Warrior Education and Hiring Expo, this past Tues-Thurs, participating with Wounded, Ill, and Injured Marines from Quantico, Walter Reed, Portsmouth, Lejeune, Camp Pendleton, and as far away as Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

The Expo, hosted by WWR, is designed to assist wounded, ill, and injured service members with their transition in two ways: job-seeking education and training, and a job fair that includes onsite interviewing which Able Forces was proud to participate in. Another outstanding day with great Marines and old friends. A big Army HOOAH! to all of them. This old soldier loves his Marines!
