Understanding the business case for--and the business of--hiring veterans

June 25, 2018

 

 

Over the years I’ve often been asked: “What’s the correct way to celebrate Memorial Day, and, is the word celebrate even the right word?  Should we be somber and reflective, or happy and celebratory because of all we have to be thankful for?”  To this I’d emphatically respond with: “Yes”- you should be both, wholeheartedly.

“What do you do?” A seemingly innocuous question we ask and are all asked so many times in our adult lives.  At a party, on an airplane, when meeting someone for the first time- it’s the “icebreaker” that helps understand, or perhaps even define each other.  But what’s struck me through the years- particularly since I’ve retired from the military- is what I reveal to and about myself in the answering.
