May 21st, 2016 is Armed Forces Day. It is a time to celebrate, thank and honor all Americans who have served in one of the five branches of the military; Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine or Coast Guard. Many cities acknowledge this day through hosting parades and community outreach programs. And while the recognition is appreciated by military service personnel, they seek more than a pat on the back.
In a BBC story entitled “What Makes a Hero,” Congressman and Iraqi War Veteran, Seth Moulton, is quoted saying “We don’t need parades and celebrations; we need people to give us an opportunity when we come home.”
The military is a place where men and women can hone skills that bolster leadership, drive, persistence and perseverance. Many of these traits can be applied after service to become an entrepreneur or small business owner. A Vanguard Cleaning Systems® Janitorial Franchise may provide an appealing opportunity.
