This totally speaks to me.

Ssgt Brooks, I was in a similar situation like the one you describe... but for not as long. I would not have lasted as long as you have. I was confident that I would be easily employed again, and found myself lowering the bar for every rejection. It was just heart breaking... and then I did get a shot. It was a fluke, but it panned out. I hope everything works out for you.

David:
I shot you a connection request on LinkedIn, I do have a few contacts that support veterans in seeking employment. Are you open to relocation? I know Kansas has a number of industries that would support someone with your background (Lockheed, Cessna, and a few others.)
I would recommend looking at states with very low unemployment rates, as there is a high demand for labor. If you want to consider Iowa as an Option (about a 3.2% unemployment rate) I would recommend looking into Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids. https://www.rockwellcollins.com/

Iowa also has a great program for Veterans, I used the housing grant when we moved here, and I got the lifetime fishing/hunting license for only $7: https://www.homebaseiowa.gov/

This is very true! Need more employment that a vet can actual do and not these unrealistic positions.
