MARCH 4TH: Hug A Veteran Day

Mar 4, 2015 0

Today is March 4, 2015.  It’s HUG A VETERAN DAY.  We, at GNN, would like our fans, and family to take time to give the men and women who serve our great Nation a big bear hug!  Moreover, let’s take a moment to be aware of the issues that face our Warriors of the USA as they come back from Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan.  One of the issues that verterans face is unemployment.  So, in their honor, we would like to share this good news with our veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.  Thank you for your service.


Nationally recognized Marine Corps veteran Jesse Canella, in conjunction with KANDILIT, one of the fastest growing integrated IT service providers, today announced the launch of HonorVet Services (www.honorvet.com), a service-connected disabled veteran-owned staffing and technology service provider that will connect skilled and screened veterans and military spouses with employers across diverse industries for permanent, contract, contract-to-hire, and project-based placements.

In addition to his service in the Marine Corps, Canella brings to HonorVet expertise in military and veterans affairs, corporate recruitment and the acclimatization of veterans for meaningful roles within the civilian workplace. Co-Founder KANDILIT (www.kandilit.com), whose leadership team has over 100 years combined experience, is committed to support HonorVet through its well-established sales, delivery and technology infrastructure.

“We are proud and excited to be a part of HonorVet’s mission and look forward to making a significant impact in increasing veterans’ opportunities in the workforce with Fortune 500 companies,” said KANDILIT CEO, Fahad (Fred) Syed. “Our veterans are an essential and integral part of our society, and they deserve focused and structured services that meet their needs and diverse backgrounds.”

Each year, more than 300,000 U.S. troops complete their military service, providing a highly trained workforce eager to transition to professional civilian careers. Yet, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, post-9/11 veteran unemployment stands at 24.3%, and this is expected to increase in 2015 due to the planned troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“There are more than 4,100 different types of jobs in the Armed Forces, and 88% of those have a direct civilian job counterpart,” said Canella, President and Co-Founder of HonorVet Services. “HonorVet hopes to reduce the rising and staggering veteran unemployment figures by working with small, medium and large enterprises across the country to help them attract, select and retain a quality workforce by hiring our nation’s heroes.”

Honoring Sept. 11th… Never Forget

Sep 11, 2014 0

As we reflect on this historic date, let’s also choose to restore our faith in those who keep our Nation safe.  There is no better way to honor the memory of 09-11-01 than to honor the men and women who serve this country.  Make a commitment on this auspicious date to serve our Veterans of each of the Armed Services in a new & innovative way.

Whether they served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coastal Guard, or National Guard, our safety and protection depends on a special set of women and men have proven their willingness to give their lives for the citizens of the United States of America.  Now, it’s our turn.

Here are few ideas to serve our Veterans as we commemorate 09-11-01:

1.  Simple… Say “Thank You for Your Service.”  If you notice an Active Duty Soldier or an experienced Verteran, then nothing warms their hearts more than this simple 5 word statement.  Try it.  Let our Editor at GNN know what you discovered.  You will be amazed!

2.  Give…  Find a non-profit or charity (aka Veteran Support Service organization) who supports a specific cause.  Whether it is Wounded Warriors (www.USO.org), AMVETS (www.AMVETS.org), or little known VSO’s like Hearts for Veterans LLC in Atlanta, Georgia.

3.  Volunteer… Each of these VSO’s have events throughout the event, not just on Sept. 11th.  Perhaps, Commit to volunteer your time to Veterans Empowerment Organization by clicking this link (http://bit.ly/1lXPtUz).

 

THE MIRACLES OF 9/11

Amid the disaster, we need to NEVER FORGET that there were miracles and GoodNews that occurred as well.   Let’s take the story of the last World Trade Center survivor, Genelle Guzman-MacMillian.  Genelle tell her story in her new book, Angel in the Rubble: The Miraculous Rescue of 9/11’s Last Survivor.  The Port Authority employee and author, says that it is the ordeal of reliving how two hijacked planes 10 years ago sent the World Trade Center crumbling, burying her co-workers and herself beneath piles of rubble. As Guzman-McMillan lay buried alive for nearly 30 hours, the screams she heard in the darkness around her soon faded away. She was alone, she thought, and could think of only one thing to do – cry out to God.


FOR MORE INFORMATION:

Consider review the Veteran Service Organization (VSO) Directory in detail for additional opportunities.  In this official publication by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (http://www.va.gov/vso), you will find VSO’s and connect with their missions that will affect you beyond 9/11 to the ones who serves us so well… OUR ACTIVE DUTY SOLDIERS AND OUR VETERANS!
