‘Hero 2 Hired’ Mobile Job Store to visit Arlington Fly-In

The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs’ “Hero 2 Hired” Mobile Job Store will be operational at the Arlington Fly-In July 12 & 13, 2013,

This Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve partner program, also known as H2H, utilizes an electronic job and career web platform, mobile applications and Facebook integration, as well as virtual and physical career fairs to address the unique employment challenges facing members of the Guard and Reserve. While specifically created for Guard and Reserve service members, all job-seeking veterans are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity.

The Mobile Job Store allows users to search for available jobs through the H2H jobs website, specifically designed to connect those seeking employment with military-friendly civilian employers that have made a commitment to hire veterans. The H2H van also provides service members assistance with resume building and translating their military skills to civilian job qualifications.

This empowering tool absolutely is available for service members, spouses, veterans and employers.  The Mobile Job Store is just a small part of H2H’s focused effort to help service members and their spouses find employment through various activities including employment assistance workshops, job fairs, employment summits, and many other local community programs.

Launched in November 2011, the mission of H2H is to simplify the job search while reducing the number of unemployed Reserve Component Service members. H2H is managed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs and works in partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and ESGR.

Warbird Aircraft at Arlington Fly-In

Flying Heritage Collection’s P-47, on display Saturday. 

P47-4

The planes within the Flying Heritage Collection were created at a time when aeronautical discovery had evolved to aviation mastery. Finely crafted by distinguished design bureaus with leading technologies of the 1930s and 1940s, the main emphasis of the collection includes combat aircraft from World War II.   In 1998, Paul G. Allen began acquiring and preserving these iconic warriors and workhorses, many of which are the last of their kind. Allen’s passion for aviation and history, and his awareness of the increasing rarity of original WWII aircraft, motivated him to restore these artifacts to the highest standard of authenticity and share them with the public.

Historic Flight Foundation’s P51 Impatient Virgin, along with the L4 and C45 through out the event.

Sessions Historic Aircraft Foundation” with the intention to collect, restore, and share significant aircraft from the period between the solo Atlantic crossing of Charles Lindbergh and the first test flight of the Boeing 707. Throughout the intervening years, Historic Flight has acquired at least two aircraft annually and engaged the best restoration resources available to return the collection to original splendor.
