Our District 30 Ohio State Senator is being recognized for the work he is doing in the legislature to increase job and education opportunities for veterans. Thursday afternoon, Senator Lou Gentile was given a letter of recognition by the Jefferson County Veterans Service Commission. He says that the idea for one of the passed bills to help members of the military, came to him after he was approached at a Memorial Day parade by a veteran.
Commissioner of the Jefferson County Veterans Service Commission Bill Demjam applauds Gentiles work on Senate Bills 13 and 18.
Demjam added, “Some (veterans) are interested in going further as far as their education is concerned. They’re also seeking job opportunities, and Lou has been there for them and getting them and trying all he can to get them those benefits and some of the jobs as well.”
