You’re in the Prospective Employer’s waiting room just 5 minutes before that important job interview. You’re dressed sharp, your résumé looks polished, and you’re prepared for each and every question they throw at you! All of a sudden, there’s “Breaking News” involving a Veteran.
What do you do in order to overcome any perceptions that might arise?
Here are my thoughts...

So it is up to each veteran, acting as individual examples and "ambassadors" for the military to show by their individual actions that despite the bad acts of other "veterans" that military veterans, as a whole, are to be trusted, are good workers, and are deserving of the pride in their military service bestowed upon them by others.
