One of the many benefits of military service is the values we teach and demand of our servicemembers. I’ve said it often and I believe it: our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen are the finest people I will ever know.
Military service is not a lifelong pursuit for most of us, and at some point all of us must hang up the uniform and return to civilian life. I believe military service, be it four years or forty, gives veterans skills to make companies successful in a way no other experience can. Over at Inc.com, Drew Greenblatt has a list of 10 reasons to hire veterans and is worth the read.
If you are hiring, I encourage you to hire a vet; trust me when I say it will be the best decision you’ll ever make!
UPDATE: A link too powerful not to share from a Navy combat vet.
