Following our Kosovo Forces Rotation-25 (KFOR25) mobilization, we scheduled a job search briefing and a resume writing workshop with Deb Nakashima at Work For Warriors on an IDT weekend (on 05OCT19). The purpose of the briefing was to assist our Soldiers who were unemployed upon returning home from deployment, along with including our newly acquired skills from KFOR25 on our civilian resumes. Her efforts at the time have directly aided in two of our (35 series) Soldiers to secure immediate employment with well-established careers. Her brief was exceptionally informative. We have nothing but great things to say about her program sir as she has aided our Soldiers tremendously in the past.
