“I feel the most important skill that I learned at the VCP was the power of accomplishment, the power of confidence, the power of I can. I don’t know if that is a skill but that is what I have learned by being here.”
“This is not a ‘Become an Archaeologist’ job; it is a safe and comfortable work environment for vets to begin the adjustment into a civilian workplace with current, relevant, and cross-over skills which translate into many different non-archaeological related career fields.”
“The VCP gave me a real reason to get through life with a positive outlook; meaning, it showed me that I can be around people that will work with my limitations/disabilities.”
“I knew people cared about vets I just didn’t know how much. We’ve had volunteers from all backgrounds come here and give us every avenue to prosper. I’m thankful that after being out of service for two years that I can still work as a team with other veterans.”
“I would not be where I am today had it not been for this program. I only hope that it continues to grow and gives more veterans an opportunity to be a part of something so great.”
