As national commander of The American Legion, I am often asked what is the most appropriate way to thank a veteran. There are many ways to show your support for these heroes, but one of my favorite suggestions is to hire one.
I recommend this not just as a measure of gratitude, but because it is also a smart business move. The men and women who serve in our military are physically fit, highly trained, disciplined, tested under stress and patriotic. Not bad attributes to bring to any workplace.
Business success is greater when veterans are part of the team.
