The Rockhill Group, Inc. (TRG) is proud to be an industry partner of the Department of Defense (DoD) Skillbridge program, which provides opportunities for service members and military spouses to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships. TRG celebrates the onboarding our first Skillbridge intern, MSgt Mitchell Valentine as a Contract Weather Observer trainee based at our Weather Observer contract in Jacksonville, FL.
MSgt Mitchell Valentine is retiring from the United States Air Force (USAF) where during his last assignment he led a 70-member team as Superintendent of an Air Operations Squadron at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. He also brings nearly a decade of weather experience with him having served in a variety of roles at USAF Combat Weather Operations units across the AF enterprise during the first part of his Air Force career.
“TRG is proud to support military members, military spouses, and my fellow veterans through the Skillbridge program by providing work experience as a part of our Government contracts,” said TRG President and CEO James “Rock” Rockhill. “We look forward to continuing to support this program and, most importantly, helping provide valuable industry training and experience to transitioning military members.”
The DoD SkillBridge program assists retiring and transitioning Service members by allowing them to participate in industry training programs while transitioning out of their Military careers. Military members can participate in SkillBridge during the last 180 days of service, and spouses may take part while their partner serves on Active Duty.
