Ready to serve: Businesses find vets are dedicated, capable
May 25, 2017
NEW YORK (AP) — Clinton Smith hires veterans because he knows military service has helped them become dedicated and hard-working staffers.
"When you say, 'I need you to do this right now,' they get it done and get it done well," says Smith, a former Marine who is CEO of Government & Civil Employee Services, a financial planning company in the western Pennsylvania borough of Indiana.
Smith also finds that veterans are ideal for his company, whose clients are mostly federal workers; anyone who's been in the service has spent years understanding and navigating government-supplied benefits.
