Freedom Run USA and Operation Welcome Home are proud to be a part of the 2013 GE Veterans Network Summit in National Harbor Maryland this year.
The GE Veterans Network (GEVN) is a new addition to GE?s group of affinity networks and employee groups that allow employees with common backgrounds and interests to get to know colleagues inside and outside of their businesses, broaden personal and professional networks and give back to others.
The GEVN will create a community to support, develop and promote the unique characteristics of military veterans throughout GE?s businesses and local communities and also focus on fostering a culture inside the company that recruits, transitions, develops and retains veterans as an essential leadership pipeline at GE.
“Military veterans have grown to be a sizable group of employees at GE and we want to give them the opportunity to communicate with and support each other as they navigate their career beyond the military,” said GE?s Chief Diversity Officer, Deb Elam.
GE currently recruits military veterans through our Junior Officer Leadership Program (JOLP) as well as through hiring programs that target those finished with their active duty commitments.
The GE Veterans Network was established to bring greater visibility to GE’s veterans and what GE has to offer for veterans. This year is the first annual gathering of the units and leadership that helped launch the Network.
At the young age of 39, I took on the greatest challenge of my life, an effort that pushed me both mentally and physically like I had never been challenged before. I completed a 3452 mile 100 day run across America, capped off with a 100 mile finish from Annapolis MD to Rehoboth Beach DE in under 24 hours, all to raise awareness and money in support of the men and women I consider my heroes, those that have worn and now wear the US Military’s uniform.
My book, “Freedom Run”, was released in April of 2013, detailing my journey to honor those who have bravely served, and describes the life-changing events of my run across America. MORE>
