As a part of my responsibilities, I assist Disabled Veterans that are in that transitioning phase from active duty to becoming a civilian. Able Forces goes far beyond any organization that I have worked with in specifically helping these Veterans find the right kind of employment, using their skills attained while in the military, their interest, their aptitude… for many of these soldiers they have had different kinds of limitations placed on their abilities but rather than focus on disabilities we help them to use their abilities and continue to move forward. It is a huge boost to their self-esteem, their sense of belonging and making a difference. Thanks Able forces, sincerely, Mike

Since I first met Skip at the beginning, We have been working together to get money for his charity and find jobs for his people. We have helped him many times as corp sponsor. You can always count him to help a soldier and I know he was their when i came back from Iraq. I have small business and it is time to give back. Dig deep everyone.

I WORK WITH TRANSITIONING MILITARY AND VETERANS ON A DAILY BASIS. REFERRING THEM TO AN ORGANIZATION SUCH AS ABLE FORCES ALLOWS OUR SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN NATIONWIDE TO ACCESS JOBS THAT GIVE MILITARY SKILLS THE RECOGNITION AND OPPORTUNITY THE DESERVE. WELL DONE, SKIP!

Skip and Kathy Rogers attend Red Cross sponsored Community Joining Forces meeting and network with and offer support to all the organizations that attend these meetings. CJF meetings bring together organizations ( Public and private, Non profits, faith based communities) that provide support and resources for the local military community which includes active duty , reservists, veterans and their families. Skip regularly sends updates of job openings that are then sent through to comunity partners. This service is extremely valuable in helping to get our disabled veterans back to work.

Able Forces is one of the most exceptional Veteran non-profits that I have the privilege to work with. They really understands the needs of transitioning Service Members/Veterans and completely go the extra mile to make sure all needs are met. Able Forces has been a great resource of information and assistance in times of need.

As an Advisor, in the Microsoft Elevate America Veterans Program, I became aware of Able Forces at a Veteran Career Fair. In the course of my work, I assist all Veterans. Now I share with those Disabled Veterans the Employment and Training resources that Able Forces provide. Skip Rogers, the Executive Director, sends me current listings of job opportunities which I forward to Veterans in my database. The Microsoft program offers Free IT Training and Certification exams which Able Forces brings awareness to for Veterans needing an IT Certification. Able Forces is a wonderful resource for Disabled Veterans to move ahead successfully in their careers and lives.
