Success Story



As I began preparing for retirement from my Active Guard/Reserve position with the Indiana Army National Guard, I attended the Veteran Employment Transition Seminar put on by Operation: Job Ready Veterans (OJRV). I was scheduled to retire April 30, 2020, so I attended the seminar in July 2019.

After a 27-year career in the Army, 21 years being active duty, I knew I would need help with this transition. I had some experience over the years working in sales as a civilian. The OJRV team gave me tools and confidence in this weeklong seminar that would help create a successful transition from active duty to civilian.

Although I was uncertain what I would be doing next, during the seminar, the team helped me build a solid resume using what I did over the last 27 years in the Army and putting it into civilian terms. They talked to me about the benefits I have available to me. They also prepared me for job interviews.

Now in 2021, I am a full-time student at Indiana Tech working towards my Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. Spring of 2021, I started MCB Elite Lawn Care, LLC., and I’m confident there is much more beyond the horizon.

I can’t thank the OJRV Team enough! Veterans and family members, take the time to connect with this organization.
