Local veterans have new career opportunity

US Forest Service

 

A crew of military veterans is training to become firefighters. After serving in the military sometimes veterans can have a tough time finding work, but as fire season officially begins this week a group of veterans in Klamath Falls and another group in Medford are trained and ready to help the Bureau of Land Management battle blazes. The crews will work alongside fire crews all summer. The Oregon Department of Forestry expects fire season to really heat up in August and September.
