Pentagon Web Site Helps Veterans Get Jobs

The Pentagon has created a new web site to help veterans who face difficulty returning to their old jobs or finding new ones after deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The program is called Turbotap. Its in response to veterans who have complained about problems finding jobs after repeated or extended tours in Iraq.

Deputy Undersecretary of Defense Michael Dominguez said the aim is to provide a one-stop site for National Guardsmen and Reserve members to get job information, build a resume, and conduct job searches.

Veterans will also be able to create a customized transition plan from military to civilian life.

The announcement comes as several government panels reviewed ways to improve veterans care, cut red tape and reduce backlogs for veterans seeking disability benefits.
