This information will assist in two ways, he in charge will know what types of jobs are desired so that employ- ers can be contacted about using veterans in those kinds of work, and it will give those in charge a better idea of how many vet- erans want and need such work. Employers interested in em- ploying or who already have in their establishments veterans working under this program are invited to attend the meeting, which those in charge believe will be informative for them as well as for the veterans. Arrangements for the meeting are being made with the assist- ance of the VFW post here.
