As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business, Veterans Day holds special meaning for our company, and certainly for me. I spend the day reconnecting with brothers and sisters with whom I served, remembering our times in military service, both good and bad. While Veterans Day has a special and distinct meaning from Memorial Day, I find it’s hard not to think of those I served with who are no longer with us. Thinking about them reminds me of my commitment to live a life of purpose and service that is worthy of their sacrifice.
As a business owner, I take tremendous pride in our Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned certification and what it represents. I’m proud of our company, our culture, and our team. We are not a team of all Veterans, which is good thing, as our different backgrounds and viewpoints make us strong; but during this week, we do honor the TruView team members who have served our nation.
As proud as I am, though, I do not seek for our company to be hire purely on the basis of a certification but, rather, on the merit of our accomplishments and capabilities as a partner agency in background screening and investigations. I believe that desire is shared by other Veterans and Veteran companies seeking employment in the private sector.
I believe that hiring Veterans is not the “right” thing to do, nor the charitable thing to do, but the smart thing to do for businesses, for our communities, and our country. I’m thankful for all those that have worn the uniform and shed that uniform for their next act of service. At this time and every Veterans Day, we are grateful that you keep all Veterans in your thoughts and take time to listen to their stories and invest in their successes.
Thank you for your trust in TruView!
