The UK is making 6500 military personnel redundant and JLG wants to help.

Automotive News reports the Anglo-Indian automaker, along with Ford and Bentley, has developed an apprenticeship program aimed at so-called early leavers — those who served in the military for less than three years — meant to prepare them “for work in the automotive industry and to help them develop the skills that they need to apply to the recruitment process” within the company or inside the industry as a whole, according to Jaguar community officer Kate Birkenhead.

This is great news. I'm not sure what the situation is in the UK, but I know in the US there is a huge problem with veterans getting integrated into the work force. Veterans are already so disciplined, they would make great employees. They are a great resource, its a smart move by JLG.

I think its so sad that veterans end up homeless once they get home. For some reason some companies are averse to hiring veterans. Maybe they think war messes them up or something.

Not sure what it is, but I think ultimately it's the individuals fault for not doing anything about it, that's if they are mentally and physically able, which in that case I don't feel sorry. BUT I still think governments should take care of their vets and at least offer employment assistance for those that want to pursue something else.
