Unions, companies look to expand apprenticeships for airmen
from Air Force Times
Twelve miles south of the gates of Joint Base Lewis McChord, separating troops are planning for their future in a cloud of welding sparks. The United Association's Veterans in Piping program, headquartered in a concrete concert building in an industrial park south of the sprawling Air Force and Army installation, selects a group of 18 separating service members for an intensive, 16-week program to get them certified in welding and pipefitting and set them up with jobs. The program is part of a new push to hire the wave of veterans leaving military service.
