Veteran’s Day is the one day set aside to honor those who have served and continue to serve our nation. It’s also an excellent opportunity to teach civilians about the sacrifice service members have made and acknowledge them in the workplace. To show our appreciation in addition to our 2018 Veterans Day offer, all month long we will be featuring employees who have served our country before joining the Reliant Funding family.

What does being a veteran mean to you?

In looking back on your time in service what are you most proud of?
“I met and made some amazing friends in the military. It was a different type of camaraderie that I will never forget.”
Does your time in the military continue to influence your life today? Do you apply anything from that time to your day-to-day life now?
“I believe my time in the military shaped the kind of father I am for my daughter and the lessons I’ll pass down to her.”
What advice do you have for veterans who were recently discharged or who are on the verge of a discharge?
“Be proud of being a veteran. Use your benefits and don’t be afraid to remind people of the freedoms they and their families have because of the men/women that served throughout the history of this country.”
