Last year, Forbes released an article titled, "5 Reasons Leaders Hire Veterans," in honor of Veteran's Day. The five reasons were: 1. Leadership - because members of the military know how to take orders, and when to give them
2. Grace under Pressure - because members of the military learn how to stay calm and function under extreme pressure
3. Performance and Results - because members of the military have a mission and failure is not an option
4. Self-sacrifice - because members of the military watch out for everyone else first
5. Communication and Goal-setting - because members of the military learn how to set goals, communicate them, and accomplish them
Thank you to all Veterans and all in Active Military Service. We appreciate your sacrifice and your example. With the freedom you have fought to protect, I hope we choose to demonstrate the qualities you have taught us.
