Veteran Employment Tools (VET) Program

Are you a veteran who is...

  • Interested in an automotive technician career?
  • Honorably Discharged?
  • Transitioning or recently (within one year) separated from the military?
  • Has at least 4-6 years of experience and have relevant work experience from MOS-related fields?
  • Available to begin work within 30 days from a position start date?
  • In need of assistance to purchase the required toolkit to gain employment?

Transitioning veterans in skilled trades often face the burden of having the technical experience, but not the financial means to afford career-specific tool sets which can often run $5,000 or more. To help address this problem, the VFW has created a pilot program, the Veteran Employment Tools (VET) Program, which will award up to 20 veterans interested in an automotive technician career with a custom Snap-on tool kit, worth an estimated $5,000. We're working with UPS who is currently hiring automotive technicians in XX markets across the nation, to help ensure transitioning veterans fill some of those positions. Once a selected veteran is hired, UPS will ship the tool kits directly to the veteran so they're ready for their first day of work. 

To apply, submit your DD-214 and a brief 250-500 word statement of what this type of opportunity would mean in your pursuit of a career to lrolf@vfw.org. Qualified applicants will then be contacted by a VFW staff member with instructions on potential employment opportunities in the automotive technician career field.
