(WDEF) A new organization kicked off a better way for veterans to job search Monday night.
     VetForce1 gets veterans together with veteran-friendly companies.
     The goal is to give vets a fighting chance to enter the civilian job market.
     VetForce1 offers programs and support to help veterans and their families make a successful transition from military service to civilian life.
     Jared Dickerson is a veteran of the US Army.  He said, "People that have experience in the military want that experience to translate into the job field.  So they're not always necessarily looking for entry-level positions."
     Larry Trabucco is the VetForce1 President.  He said, "For the military, they have a different language.  They have acronyms that they use and what we want to do and what they've asked us to do is help them translate their language and skill level into the private sector."
     Monday night's kick-off event was packed.
