Troop Support! (5/365) Hire veterans!

This war is producing many young men and women who have completed their military service and are reentering civilian life.

Remember, they took care of us, lets take care of them!

Whenever you can, look to veterans when you are seeking a new employee.

They have so much going for them. Veterans are used to responsibility, accountability, and working as part of team.

Believe me veterans know what it means to show up and turn in a solid day of work, come rain or shine.

Do not be afraid of hiring disabled veterans. You will find that drive, training, and experience will overcome apparent limitations. Many federal support programs are in place to be sure that this is possible.

  3. the new NBC show MERCY about nurses highlights a nurse who is a veteran of the war in Iraq. She is coping with returning to civilian life but fights tirelessly for her patients and is an inspiration to the other doctors and nurses in the hospital. Of course she is a fictional character, but she is a perfect example of the passion and leadership qualities veterans have to offer. Here's a clip of her in action:

    Thank you so much for posting this! Fictional characters can really demonstrate a point well.
