Veterans from across the country have come to train at Airstream Renewable Resources for jobs in wind energy.
But they couldn’t necessarily afford to move their families to Tehachapi upon completing their education and landing a local job.
That’s where Veterans Collaborative Services comes in, Tehachapi City Councilman Ed Grimes shared during the Tehachapi Rotary Club lunch meeting Oct. 6.
Although the collaborative is in what Grimes called its “infantile stages right now,” it has worked to address many areas veterans may need help with, such as financial assistance, employment and education.
