Recruiting Veterans
Veterans continue to plan an essential--if not pivotal--role within the IRS.  What steps, plans, processes, programs can you think of where we tap into this vast resouce of highly trained, dedicated, and professional personnel?  Where can you help the MOS tie the knot between the IRS and various military units, installations, etc?  Let us know!

I think we should send a representative to the separation TAP classes that each base should offer.  What a wonderful way to get the word out to people who are ready to get out and may be in need of a job.  I know that the TAP representative from the Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, MS is easy to work with and open to new ideas about after service jobs.  Does anyone else think this would work with other bases?  I'll admit my base experience is limited.

For the POD's near bases we could try to become part of the transition/outprocessing programs to introduce potential applicants to the IRS--especially since they begin almost a year out from discharge.

Bob Alexander here.  We at the DC Chapter are addressing with Workforce of Tommorrow (WOT), the Commissioner's key instrument for positive change in the IRS, how MOS VETS can immediately impact both positively and directly on the IRS current and projected loss of leadership.  All VETS have both the qualified training and experience to be selected for leadership roles in the IRS if and when they are "identified".  As I have learned, there is currently no mechanism in the IRS with either staffing specialist or using our current technology to identify VETs who are employed in the IRS who have served or are currently serving in the military.  I would love to be a test project, so to speak, and present my creditials to anyone in leadership to prove, not only myself but other VETs working in the IRS are highly skilled, dedicated, reliable and seasoned professionals that can be called upon to Lead.  Presenting our ORB, DD214 and documentation of completion of NCOES academy training will produce results.

As we stand up the NCFB chapter, we may want to develop a cooperative effort with you to work with the Walter Reed Warrior Transition Unit (wounded warriors), as well as whatever similar operation they may have at Bethesda.  A lot of these Soldiers no longer have the military as a career option and are wondering what they'll be doing with their lives.  I still carry a military ID and can get in there.
