Skip and his wife are so passionate about helping veterans find jobs. The first time I met him, he read over my resume, and asked me what I really wanted out of life. Even though I found a job through another company that helps veterans and spouses get hired; I know if I reached out to him today, he would do his best to find me a job. :)

I am a veteran and college graduate. I would not be employed today without the assistance of Able Forces. With dignity and respect, thank you.

My experience with Able Forces was very desirable both in terms of dealing with a professional nonprofit organization and in relation to the successful end-result. Able Forces worked diligently with me and on my behalf to pair me with a career I could be proud to begin. The nonprofit excels at understanding its clientele. Able Forces knows what it means to be a disabled veteran and how to help those men and women. I would recommend Able Forces and I am thankful for all they did for me personally--five stars.

I met my Able Force representative at a local VFW Job Fair in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Their immediate focus was on what they could do for me and how my military experience could open doors to future employment opportunities. I left the job fair knowing they saw me as a person and more importantly they cared about my future. Their representative followed up with me via email and over the next couple of weeks they sent me job listings for open positions being filled in my local area. Once I responded with interest in a particular position, they contacted me by phone to help me highlight my skills and what I could bring to the position. They continued to offer assistance throughout the entire employment process and it was a great comfort knowing I had their support.


Today I have a great job but I could still be unemployed without their help. I can't describe how it feels to be part of a unit and to once again contribute to the safety and security of our great nation. I would like to say a special thanks to Skip Rogers and the other members of the Able Forces team for the work they do supporting our Veterans and what they bring to the table.

The US Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment has worked with Able Forces over the last 2 years to assist wounded warriors transition from military to civilian life. Able Forces' commitment and dedication to assisting wounded warriors is beyond reproach. The staff displays a level of compassion that exemplifies what organizations should exhibit when delivering services to our wounded warriors. Recently, Able Forces contacted the Regiment regarding a Marine veteran in the Huntville, AL area who was desparately in need of assistance. Due to Able Forces' determined outreach and collaborative efforts, this Marine was provided with valuable resources to assist him through a chalenging hardship period.
