I’m Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA. Ford has once again awarded a veteran a two year scholarship for automotive training and owner of CarProUSA Certified Dealership Five Star Ford of Carrollton, Texas Sam Pack says this year’s veteran James Brown is guaranteed a job at his dealership. Pack: "Yeah, so he is actually on the payroll as we speak and it's an honor and privilege for us to be part of the program. Anytime that we can do something for our veterans I think it's obviously, it's an honor for us to be involved. So we're looking forward to having James in our organization and people like James is coming back into, let's call it the civilian network, and more times than we would like these individuals are experiencing some personal problems. And so in this particular case, that's what happened with James. He ended up being homeless and so, think about if you will, not just him, but all of the people that are coming out, there's a responsibility I think that we have to try to help them get back into the mainstream of society.
