NASHVILLE (AP) – A retired Tennessee National Guardsman has taken on a new role to help members of the Guard and their families find jobs and get career counseling.

Retired command sergeant major Bill Marley is the manager of the Tennessee Job Connection Education Program, which is sponsored by the Army National Guard. Tennessee is one of only four states to have the support program, which has placed more than 600 Tennessee National Guard personnel and their families in jobs with companies across Tennessee since 2012.

Marley said in a news release that he helps translate military skills into civilian terms and tries to instill a sense of hope for those who are struggling in the job market.
