“A must-read for HR and College Recruiters” – Bob Dees, Major General, U.S. Army, Retired, Former VP for Military Outreach, Liberty University, Author of Resilience Trilogy

U.S. Veterans in the Workforce by Mike Schindler is an important piece, with a unique relevance as it relates to the integration of the marketplace and principles learned through military service. In today’s workforce, we’re finding more and more companies focused on a “narrow” career path – an inch wide – in a “silo’d” approach. Yet, through military service, we’re developing leaders holistically, which means they become more and more valuable in the marketplace as future leaders who can see the big picture.” – Jeff Rogers, Chairman & CEO, OneAccord
