Despite many employers complaining about not being able to find talent during “The Great Resignation,” there’s one group of our nation's population that is more than ready to tackle any kind of job, our veterans.

However, amongst all the flag waving, the “thank you for your servicing,” and patriotic social media posts on holidays, the jobless rate for all veterans rose to 6.5% across 2020 (for reference, the non-military unemployment rate rose to 6.7% over 2020).

Tony Stewart, a 20-year-veteran of the U.S. Naval Submarine fleet, found a new mission after leaving the Navy. An impressive tenure creating dozens of new Navy SEAL classes and as a legislative member of The American Legion, Tony eventually cofounded Us4Warriors, a group dedicated to helping veterans, active-duty military, and their families overcome hardships to improve their ability to contribute to society.

Boasting dozens of programs, ranging from providing food, shelter, and medical needs, to counseling, athletic programs, and even blockchain based programming, Tony understands what returning veterans need to orient themselves in a changing workforce, so they can unleash their full potential.

With many employers and job seekers still struggling to find and maintain work, and with the end of November marking the end of Veterans month, Tony’s insights and experience couldn't come at a more perfect time.

So with that...let’s bring it in!
