still serving veterans is a group of ex govt employees who cant get back in the big action money at redstone arsenal et al - but still seek to suck off the govt teet. they might assist a few officers with finding employment in the area- but like most of Huntsville, if you aint part of their little country club they aint gonna do much for you but give you a lot of lip service - cheezy pep talks about how to apply yourself to your pitiful job search- while they remind you the have a lunch break , coffee break or other activity that they want to get to as soon as your 45 minute pep talk is over. I went to ssv for some help finding a job - and was treated like a stain on the carpet that needed to be removed. a select group of self important people with big plaques on their desk pretending to care. the worst kind of patronizing and glad handing anyone will get anywhere short of a food stamp office- my morale was low when I went in to ssv and lowered further still by my experience with these desk jockeys !!!!!?????!!!!!!????

I was fortunate enough to learn about Still Serving Veterans last October...what a wonderful organization! I have been volunteering there and not only is it a fulfilling experience, the staff there makes you feel so very appreciated.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of a thing...unless it were to clone the VERY hard working people who work there. The dedication of everyone in the building is truly inspiring.

Volunteering with Still Serving Veterans has been a great experience. I have learned a lot more about the Huntsville veteran community, the needs of our local veterans and ways to help them that I never knew were possible. They will help a veteran with any problem. If they don't have some who can help, they will find another person or organization who can. I have witnessed this organization change lives for the better on numerous occasions.

The people who came to the event were very appreciative of those taking the time to help them. The people I came in contact with were genuinely excited on what they learned and seemed positive with the critique on their resumes.

SSV is one of the few nonprofits that provide our Veterans , wounded warriors and their families a holistic approach to reintegration. They are a national fully service agency for providing Veterans assistance in filing their VA claims or appealing their claims. They provide an individual employment plan for Veterans and mentor them so they can be trained, educated and provided with a meaningful new careers as they transition into post military live. The staff are all Veterans and professional counselors who can assist with benefits and job placement.
