BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA — Congressman Bill Posey toured Veterans Assembled Electronics in Cape Canaveral.
Based in Cape Canaveral and Newport, Rhode Island, Veterans Assembled Electronics provides combat-wounded veterans with electronics skills to enter or advance a career in electronics.
“I don’t know that there’s a more worthy cause than taking veterans who are not employed and training them to enter the workforce,” Posey said.
“VAE seems to be doing a very good job at that, and I’m grateful to have representatives from the Veterans Administration here today who shared the results that they’ve seen. I got to meet some of the students and I enjoyed seeing the learning proceess they’re going through and how they’re developing their skills.”
In addition to electronic training, VAE coaches service-disabled veterans on crafting resumes, preparing for interviews, and links them to potential employers – giving them a much greater chance for employment.
VAe also does custom and specialized electronic design as well as small-scale manufacturing for the Navy.
