Merlyn, a San Bruno resident, attended the boot camp in October 2012. He had been looking for work for 7 or 8 months and was feeling discouraged. He spoke to Swords to Plowshares and shared his frustration that peace time veterans are treated differently than war time veterans. He is a peace time veteran and says there are fewer resources and opportunities for him. Plowshares said they'd help him and signed him up for Vet Central, their job listing service. One of the listings he applied for was a job at Lowe's. He started his current position as a customer service associate at the pro-desk in February and credits boot camp for landing this job.
