With Veterans Day closely approaching, now more than ever the country will honor the brave men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.
Helping veterans re-acclimate themselves to society after their service is something we should all proudly take part in. Although there are lots of organizations that assist veterans with a variety of needs and services, many are unaware of the resources available to them.
The technology team at Aio Wireless would like to share a list of helpful mobile apps that veterans across the country can access to bring some organization and connectivity to their lives.
Whether they are researching companies that are hiring veterans, looking for the best local military discounts or reconnecting with service friends on social networks; there is a mobile application that is tailored for these honorable men and women.
A few apps recommended by Aio Wireless include:
