    I just separated from the military a couple of months ago, and I'm here in SD with my wife and twin daughters. I've been looking for work since I got out here, but nothing has presented itself. Is there anyone in the SD area that can help me find employment so my wife and baby girls can be provided for? You will NOT be disappointed.

    Hey man. Hang in there, from another vet (ex-Army).

    For what it's worth, most unemployment offices and VA centers have gotten a lot better about helping with things. You might be able to qualify for certain kinds of paid internships, under the moniker of Vocational Rehab.

    If you were any sort of linguist, you must have had great ASVAB scores; I'd use that to your advantage.

    Sorry I can't help with anything specific to your region, but trust me, the VA has gotten a lot better most places. They helped my get my current job. Good luck; it will get better.

    Ever think about working for the Feds - FBI, Homeland Security? Seems to me someone with your skills may be useful to them.

    First off - Thanks for your service, I really do appreciate all who serve.

    I can't help you from the East Coast, but I just got back from a trip to SoCal and we ended up in San Diego (Conference @ Rancho Bernardo Inn off Rt. 15). I wish you the the best; hope you can find work out there - it's a beautiful area, for sure.

    I've checked them out, and I'm in consideration for a DHS job doing interpreter and translator work. Federal hiring process moves like molassas in January, though.

    If only the job market were as beautiful as the area.. THAT would be awesome. But thank you for the well-wishes. Let's hope they manifest themselves into something good!
