Defence Ministry to offer requalifying courses for military veterans

The Czech Defence Ministry plans to offer requalifying courses to military veterans in state firms related to the ministry, defence minister Martin Stropnický said on Wednesday at a press conference on the occasion of Veterans Day. Soldiers, who served on foreign missions, could work for instance as technicians to service military equipment. The ministry has also launched a website with a list of firms offering discounts on their products and services to veterans. The Defence Ministry currently registers 817 WWII veterans and over 12,000 more recent veterans who served on foreign missions over the past 25 years.
