Enterprise-Ozark Community College became the first in the state to offer a free educational program for military personnel who have served in Iraq.
The program focuses on employability and workplace skills.
Lt. Colonel Mark Traylor is an army reservist based at Fort Rucker. He served a year's tour in the Iraqi war zone. Beginning next month, along with other Iraqi war vets will be able to access a new educational program. The Internet offered software will be offered on by Enterprise-Ozark Community College:
“Many soldiers are furthering their educations... not only in Iraq and Afghanistan but around the world with technology programs like this... the easier the access to further serve their educations"
State Representative Terry Spicer is assistant to the president at EOCC. The school is the first in Alabama to offer an extensive program for military personnel to get back in the civilian workforce.
“We understand they are having problems and issues, and we want to be in the forefront to do this"
A Fort Myers based company has been instrumental in tailoring the software for the soldiers and their families
Software will also be made available for military children to help them with their reading and math skills.
The free educational computer programs for military personnel who have served in the Iraqi war zone will be made available beginning April.
