After serving his country aboard an aircraft carrier, Jerry Young spent many years working in aircraft refueling and basic warehousing. But when his knees went bad, the U.S. Navy veteran realized he lacked some key knowledge necessary to move into a less physically demanding job.

Young, now 62, is unemployed and receiving disability benefits. However, he wants to return to work and hopes to become a drug addiction counselor.
