Friday, March 23, 2012 — Captain Timothy Page, U.S. Army Recruiting Company Commander, Charlotte, and Sergeant First Class Scott Dickinson, U.S. Army Recruiting Station Commander, Kannapolis, paid a personal visit to Pfeiffer University’s Misenheimer campus to tour North Carolina’s first AMVETS Veterans Career Center.

The commanders were given a detail briefing about “the center’s” mission, goals, and operation by the Deputy Commander, Gerry Pion; Computer Specialist, Joseph Cutrone; and the Career Center Commander, Charles Cosgrove.

The general consensus of opinion was during, what some economists call the worst recession since the Great Depression, the AMVETS Veterans Career Centers are well suited to assist those who are serving in our military as they transition into civilian careers and jobs.

Captain Page and Sergeant First Class Dickinson departed leaving behind two “Army Strong” coffee mugs and an appreciation for what AMVETS volunteers are doing to help out troops.

North Carolina’s first AMVETS Career Center is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Inquiries can be made by calling (704) 463-3026 or amvet@fsmail.peiffer.edu.
