Operation Double Eagle

Improving Warrior Quality of Life through workforce development and employment

Veteran Workforce Development

Operation Double Eagle is a 9-week skills development program in Augusta, GA that connects veterans and transitioning active-duty service members to a network of employers seeking “job-ready” veterans for nationwide career opportunities.

Tyner along with more than 50 other paratroopers were selected to represent the 82nd Airborne Division during the events remembering the events of June 6, 1944 and throughout WWII.

We actively recruit veterans with barriers to employment through our network of partners, transitioning active-duty military, and government agencies.
