Gen. Tim Orr, the Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard stated,

The National Guard partnership will add 42 new access point locations for veterans.  Services available through those access points include job search and resume assistance; unemployment claims and labor market information; educational and veteran specific resources; access to workforce specialists via live chat and more.
