The skilled worker shortage is stifling the manufacturing industry. Meanwhile, U.S. military personnel have incredible skills that would be valuable to manufacturers.

See how you can participate in the program too.
Also, Jim Rupert tells Executive Editor Theresa Houck how system integrator EOSYS benefits by participating in the AAM program, and U.S. Navy veteran Kyle Radley explains what the training entails and how he got his EOSYS controls engineer job.
