Today, many veterans come home after deployment and find themselves without a job.
Employers don’t always recognize the true skills that these soldiers can bring to the workplace. Some companies are making an effort to help these soldiers feel welcomed back into normal life and find jobs.
Interviewing Michael Wright, an Entergy worker and veteran, was insightful and inspiring! He has served in the Navy and the National Guard. He is a man who shows great dedication to his family and his country. He has recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan and has now retired. It was impressive to see his pride and his support for the young men and women who are still fighting overseas.
As a leader, he spoke of their strength, discipline, and loyalty in times of difficulty. He also showed great respect for the Afghan people. He spoke of working closely with 200 Afghans whom he trusted and respected. He also showed pride when he spoke of his children who are following in his footsteps in the armed services. Throughout the interview, Michael Wright spoke of his concern for the men and women returning from war having experienced great life lessons, but are still undervalued in the workplace.
