AWY asked you all to think of a few reasons as to why our Vets make great employees. I guess the better question is why would an employer look anywhere else! How would you like to have a worker in your employ that was trained in teamwork, able to make a decision instantaneously, understands mission, has precision discipline, and has dedicated a part of their life to defending our Country? Sounds to me like that individual would make a perfect “hire”.
A few other random thoughts. In cased you didn’t notice our website and FB banner now says 46,000 jobs available. A shout-out to those employers who “get it” and are doing something about “it”!
The other day I was flying back from Houston after meeting with Southwestern Energy, AWY’s greatest supporter, the plane was packed but there was one empty seat in the coveted first class cabin. The United Airlines flight attendant noticed a soldier in fatigues, gave him a tap on the shoulder and moved him up to the front.
Ranger Joe Leal of Vet Hunters has joined the AWY Board of Advisors. We are extremely proud to have him on our team.
Joe’s a guy who knows how to make a difference.
Oh I almost forgot, wanted to thank those of you who pointed out my typo in my last blog!
That’s it for this week at AWY. We wish all of our supporters and all the men and women who have and are serving our great Country a happy Easter and Passover.
