At All-Star Marine Services, founder Jason Michaelson and his team believe that true success is about more than growing their business; this top-notch group of professionals devotes countless hours each year to providing FREE maritime training to US Veterans.
Through The Welcome Home Project, All-Star provides former members of the US Armed Forces free career training in the maritime industry. After a one year paid internship aboard the F/V Legacy, each Veteran receives an AB Merchant Mariners Doc., and a Master 100 Gross Tons License.
All-Star then provides job placement for each Veteran.
