“I am a 70-year-old disabled Vietnam combat veteran. I had come to the end of my work career and had nothing to look forward to or to motivate me. WorkOne gave me an alternative to giving up. I fought long and hard, went back to school to update my education, and with the help of WorkOne revived my self-respect and self-confidence.

Through education and training, I’m learning an in-demand trade as a CNC machinist at Greatbatch Medical and making a living wage at the same time. Thank you WorkOne for giving me the chance to show the world that old dogs can learn new tricks.”
