Hiring Veterans and Members of the Armed Forces to Assist the Army Corps of Engineers With Historic Preservation Projects

Argument in favor

The Army Corps of Engineers would be well served by hiring veterans and members of the Armed Forces to work on historic preservation and curation projects.

We need to approve everything that will have a positive effect on the economy while also helping veterans get to work.

As Veterans return home from combat/service they are completely not being treated with the care they need enough, THIS IS UNFAIR AND CLEARLY EMBARRASSING. Our veterans deserve way more of how they are apparently properly cared for. We need to provide our veterans with the best quality occupational, educational, and medical (care, support, and opportunities) as much as possible. These are some of the most dedicated and brave men and women in the world. Everyday our military and our former military personnel have risked there lives everyday in defense for our nation so you can say that "YOU ARE ALIVE, WELL, BREATHING, AND SECURED. Without the military and these outstanding personnel such as former men and women that of severed, we would not have the ability for Freedoms and to even have the right to continue to cherish our values as well. It's a disgrace how our Veterans Administration is directed, it's a disgrace how veterans are returning home and can't support their families and themselves financially wise due to their lack of occupational opportunities even though they were dodging bullets fighting for your freedoms. So if you see a solider that has just returned from combat after 6 years in service and can barley provide food on the table and a roof over his head, and you don't want to provide him with a simple job that can get him that much more successful even though he is fighting for you to breathe every day than I advised you to rethink that thought, that's the least we can do

Absolutely yes- of course, as long as they can do the job, or can be trained to do so, it's a great way to keep those who have served our country engaged in continued service. What a wonderful way to continue one's military career and have the opportunity to transition into civilian life.

Argument opposed

There shouldn’t be a special program allowing veterans and members of the Armed Forces to work on curation projects for the Army of Corps of Engineers.

Veteran or not you need specific skills in any job. Historic preservation is no different. If you are qualified apply and use the 5 point bonus.

Imo veterans do not deserve preferential treatment, especially if they do not necessarily have the skill for a certain job. Discipline is not enough

Hiring should be based on qualifications, like experience and education. A point advantage for qualified veterans already exists in the application review systems for federal and many state governments.

    I'm shocked as to why anyone would think otherwise. The people fought for your freedom to even have such an opinion, the least that can be done is be thanked in return for their service by being taken care of and given a nice job to work in historical preservation if they wish. AND $0 from the federal budget. Doesn't seem like much to sacrifice for their sacrifice, if you ask me.

    We need to honor our veterans, and support them in every way we can. Giving our veterans work opportunities will help them and help their families as well. Even the Roman Empire recognized and helped their veterans. How can we not do the same?

    This is a kind of work which veterans with disabilities can do, including those who are too socially phobic to be hired or succeed in jobs that require better social performance.

    If the veterans in question were already engineers, this would at least ensure that the engineers are adequately disciplined.

    I think that any program designed to help people learn any new trade skill would be beneficial to our economy and society as a whole.

    It makes sense, soldiers should come first in the army. If anything this is an internal issue though, not for congress.

    Absolutely, yes. Veterans who risked their lives and many who didn't come back whole in life and limb deserve preference in hiring. Those who protest should first enlist, earn their credibility in the service to their country, and then talk.
