Program helps veterans find jobs
"We want to see you win."
That, says retired 1st Sgt. Mike Forrest, is the motto of the Veterans' Services program at the Lawton office of Oklahoma Works, 1711 SW 11th. One of two Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists, Forrest has been there since Feb. 5, and his fellow DVOP specialist, retired Sgt. Nilsa Gonzalez, joined the team May 14.
Oklahoma Works is more than a place where you go to file for unemployment, Gonzalez points out.
