LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Transitioning from the military back to civilian life can be hard for many reasons, so Andre Haynes created a group to make it easier. He founded the Armed Forces Chamber , a group to help answer any questions military members might have.
“Everything from how do I use the GI Bill to go to school, to I need help purchasing a home and I have little or no credit, how do I get medical assistance, how do I get a business loan,” Haynes said.
These questions are common, so his goal is help veterans and active service members find the answers. He said the resources exist, but there’s a disconnect between the information and the military members.
“Was information made available during their time in service, sure. But you’re probably focused on your mission, you’re probably focused on staying alive, you’re probably focused on saving and protecting the life of your brother or sister at arms,” said Haynes.
