Volusia County, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
The Port Orange-based law firm of Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell has joined with Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Florida Chapter 8 – a non-profit veterans-for-veterans group – to offer free computer training for veterans starting Jan. 30.
The first session will be led by Rolling Thunder board members John Trask and Ken Paul from 6 to 7 p.m. at Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell, 632 Dunlawton Ave., Port Orange. Classes, which are planned for every two weeks at alternating sites, will include training in MSWord, Excel, Power Point and basic internet searches.
“We’ve taken it upon ourselves to ‘pay it forward’,” Trask said of the volunteer organization that works to educate the public about prisoners of war and those still missing in action and left behind in previous wars.
According to Trask, many returning veterans have limited skills, a sense of being alone and often feel they have no place in society.
“At this time, the folks at Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell are the sole sponsors of this training program and they have been extremely generous in helping us,” Trask said. “But, we are hoping to gain additional support to allow us to expand our computer training and offer additional programs and eventually open a storefront for classes five days a week.”
Allan L. Ziffra, president of the personal-injury law firm, said they are excited to help and they hope veterans in the community take advantage of the free program.
“We’re very happy to help with this program,” Ziffra said. “It’s important that our veterans get the basic computer skills they need, whether it’s to find jobs, stay informed or to just keep in touch with family and friends.”
Class sizes are limited and reservations are required. More information, including additional class dates and times, is available from Rolling Thunder members Ken Paul at 407-797-4848 or kpofusa(at)yahoo(dot)com or Trask at 386-503-7009 or jrtrask1950(at)cfl(dot)rr(dot)com.
Anyone interested in sponsorship can also contact the group for details, Trask said.
“Helping other veterans return from a war experience to become a working member of society is the biggest reward you can get from your efforts,” he said.
