I recently had the privilege of sitting in on a meeting with some of the heads of Atlanta’s corporate entities to listen to them discuss hiring veterans and bringing awareness to the subject. As a veteran who has seen his fair share of deployments I think I can honestly say that I am somewhat of an SME on what a veteran brings to the table for a major company. The basic attributes of loyalty, honesty, and integrity are in themselves commendable, but that is not all the modern day veteran brings to the table for corporate america. The ability to make an intelligent decision based on limited information in a high stress situation is something that a combat veteran learns through experience. This is not something that can be taught, but instead is ingrained into the DNA of anyone who knows the stress of thinking on the fly.
