The military has a knack for instilling positive traits in its personnel.
Businesses and other organizations have benefited from the ability of military veterans they’ve hired to work under pressure, stay organized and motivate others.

A Defense Department program has helped fortify teaching ranks by reaching out to new veterans. Established 25 years ago, Troops to Teachers assists military personnel in transitioning to civilian life with new careers as K-12 teachers.
