I have had the pleasure of getting to participate in the different programs offered by the Veterans Transition Support (VTS) here in my local area. The staff have really impacted not only myself but the people I care about and educated us on important subjects to lead us to success. I would say that one improvement would be to get them more funding, given they are a non-profit, this would allow them to offer even more programs and continue to serve the community in a great way.
