AFTA-Cincinnati is so proud of the men and women who are serving our country and now many are coming home from overseas. As part of our on-going effort to support them, we are opening this web page to provide information on opportunities for education and employment in the Tri-State area (OH, KY, IN) around Cincinnati. On this page we will be posting information and links as we become aware of them. We hope you will visit this page often and pass this link along to your fellow service men and women.
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our country.
