Trump order eases transition for veterans, active-duty military to Merchant Marine
from The Washington Times
President Donald Trump will sign an executive order that helps active-duty military and sea veterans transition into the Merchant Marine, which handles cargo and passenger shipping but can be called upon in wartime for sealift operations. The order will waive licensing fees and let applicants count education and experience on military ships toward their certification as a merchant mariner, allowing them to skip training classes that can cost them up to $25,000.
