Veteran’s Day is the one day set aside to honor those who have served and continue to serve our nation. It’s also an excellent opportunity to teach civilians about the sacrifice service members have made and also to acknowledge them in the workplace. To show our appreciation, all month long we will be featuring employees who have served our country before joining the Reliant Funding family.

What does being a veteran mean to you?
“For me being a veteran is to serve your Country with pride.”
What inspired you to join the military?
“My Father was the main reason I joined the military. He inspired me. He served in the Military for 30 years.”
What experiences impacted you the most when you served?
“Joining the military made me grow up faster and made me more accountable and responsible at an early stage of my adulthood.”
In looking back on your time in service what are you most proud of?
“I’m proud to say that I served my country in general. I feel everyone should serve their country even for a short time.”
Does your time in the military continue to influence your life today? Do you apply anything from that time to your day-to-day life now?
“Being in the military has made me more self-efficient. It showed me how to be confident in myself and my decisions no matter what. The experience taught me that if I fail, never to give up. Just continue to get back up and move forward.”
What advice do you have for veterans who were recently discharged or who are on the verge of a discharge?
“Just keep moving forward and keep your head up!”
