LICA Establishes Crucial Program for Veterans

posted 10/1/2021

The Land Improvement Contractors of America (LICA) has established the LICA Educational Foundation for Veterans. The foundation’s mission is to train U.S. military veterans to become highly skilled heavy equipment operators, as well connecting them with employment opportunities.

LICA national CEO Jerry Biuso Sr. said in a statement that the cause is near and dear to his heart. “Years ago, when the Vietnam war was raging, I didn’t get drafted because I had a wife and two children. But a lot of my buddies went, and not all of them came back,” he said, adding, “If I’d gone, I probably wouldn’t have come back either. I didn’t know the business end of a gun.”

He says the foundation is his way of repaying veterans for their service.
