BATON ROUGE- Veterans spend years serving our country, so when they come home it's only right that we return the favor. Dr. Charles Achane was on 2une In Tuesday to tell John Pastorek more about what the Louisiana Veterans Business Outreach Center is doing to make veterans' lives easier.

The Louisiana Veterans Business Outreach Center (LVBOC) provides assessments, long-term counseling, training, and many other services to veterans and members of the National Guards and Reserve Components of the U.S. Military.

The military is in a period of downsizing, so there is an increasing amount of displaced veterans that need help.

"The downsizing is putting a lot of our veterans out on the streets," said Achane. "It's a sad state of affairs, but they're coming back in various states of disarray."

The LBOC was originally in place to help veterans with their business skills. Now the organization extends to every part of a veterans life. Operation Warrior Transition helps veterans ease back into life at home. It works with a lot of great veterans that have served and understand what it's like going from active combat to life back in America, and they can use experiences of their own to help others.

If you're interested in seeking assistance for the Louisiana Veterans Business Outreach center you can call their office at 337-824-3900 or visit the LVBOC website.
