Operation Dustoff

I am looking for an intern to help our organization with research and grant writing for our Aerial Predator Control program.

We made the decision to employ injured military service personnel on a PRN basis as our precision shooters in April 2013 and created Operation Dustoff (501c3) as the project that re-trains the veterans and qualifies them to be eligible for employment with us (PRN basis).  By using military veterans, we are able to offer the veterans the help they need with transition to civilian life by offering job skills & references, as well as offering them a very specific form of counseling, if you will.

On the business side, by using injured military service personnel as precision shooters, we can offer landowners the peace of mind that they are not only supporting the troops but that their land, livestock, etc. is safe from accidental injury and that they are getting the best eradication services that the State of Texas has to offer.

This is a very unique opportunity as we are the ONLY operation in Texas with this program (we developed it) and we stand to set a state precedence in aerial control and the protection of Texas Agriculture.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
