'Veterans Connection Center' opens in Camp Hill

Posted: Updated:


Pennsylvania veterans have a new place to call home.

The recently-formed Pennsylvania Veterans Chamber of Commerce opened its "Veterans Connection Center" on 36th Street in Camp Hill Monday evening.

It's run entirely by volunteers, and will serve as a "one stop shop" for any job seeker who has worn the uniform.

"A lot of those organizations out there, they do great and wonderful things, but they fail at follow up with the veterans and we plan on not only putting them back to work, but the chamber's going to be following them throughout their career or the birth of their business," president Robert Brandt said.

The center features a library, computers and professionals who will conduct lectures, seminars and job training. It's open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Rep. Scott Perry (R-4th District) visited the center's grand opening, and pledged to help it achieve 501c3 tax-exempt status as a non-profit, Brandt said. The goal is to fully staff the center, and eventually expand to other cities in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
