The DOD is often reported to have many vacancies for which it is recruiting. Why not have able veterans volunteer to fill these until a permanent appointment is made? Thousands of veterans have once had clearances that might be updated with less effort than the new appointments will require. Thousands need either no compensation or little more than just there expenses paid, and many who are computer-savy might be assigned tasks they could do at home. I'm about to be 67 and I would be happy to help if there were something useful I could do. There must be some others in this category.
