Codi W., Marines
“He is an all around master of skills. While he was infantry in the military he picked up on so many other skills such as automotive technician, welding, constructing, leadership, and technical skills. He can fix anything with just what he’s got around him. He’s beyond universal and such a handy man around our home. He specifically wanted to be a police officer for a long time but has a huge interest in progressing his knowledge in welding as it is his favorite activity!”

Christopher S., Navy
“Chris was an aviation electrician in the US Navy but decided to take a career turn after serving 8 years in the military. He currently holds a Bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration and in 8 weeks will complete his Masters degree in Healthcare Administration. In the 3 or 4 years it has been since leaving the military, he has been unable to find work. He is a strong leader and is very knowledgeable in the healthcare field. He would be an asset to any healthcare company/facility that will give him the chance he deserves.”
