On today’s AVP, we discuss the VA Mission Act signing, AMVETS Radio, AMVETS’ upcoming national convention, and a post in North Carolina that established a scholarship targeting our women veterans. We also cut to an interview we did with Rod Levy, CEO/founder of Code Platoon, a 14 week program training veterans in coding and computer software.
While a formal education can pave the path to a good career, sometimes higher ed focuses more on theory than practice. After graduation, students might still have to learn skills on the job. Rod says Code Platoon focuses on career services, to help place veterans in the workforce with skills they can use right away.
