Crucible has been employing military and law-enforcement veterans for almost 15 years. After all, these are some of the most qualified professionals to provide intensive training in firearms, vehicle safety and medical response to our current soldiers, sailors and police officers. These jobs are highly specialized and provide a great opportunity for our veterans returning home.
Almost everyone in Spotsylvania County has close ties to the military, through family or neighbors if not directly. Veterans are an important part of our community. We have an obligation to support businesses that value veterans as much as we do. We should welcome (the Crucible anti-terrorism training facility) to Spotsylvania County, not block it from coming.
