But leaders are proactive. They very rarely sit and wait for things to happen. Their optimism drives them to seek out ways to continually improve. And many veterans gain this trait.

A title about veterans, written by a veteran: What happens when they transition from the battlefront to the home front? Mike Schindler - Navy Veteran, Founder and CEO of Operation Military Family - explores that question in his new book, "U.S. Veterans in the Workforce: Why the 7 Percent are America's Greatest Asset," which came out in October. The title is available at all major retailers, and at Elevate Publishing's website.

Schindler devotes each chapter to a different soldier, highlighting the soldier's story and a quality that the soldier developed through training. Schindler reflects on the experiences of his comrades to explain how powerful veterans can be in today's workforce. In doing so, he dispels common myths about veterans and their perceived struggles when they return home from service.
Sections cover different characteristics including Adaptability, Loyalty, Values and Respect. Schindler writes, "How does one mentally go from being a part of the country’s greatest, most important mission and job to being a cog in the corporate machine with a messed up home life? For some, this can be a divide that is hard to overcome. Some drink. Some lose everything. Some take their lives. But most don’t. Most find their way to a new sense of nobility. They have a breakthrough."
Bob Dees, retired Major General with the U.S. Army calls the book "A must-read for HR and College Recruiters." Bob is also Former VP for Military Outreach at Liberty University and author of "Resilience Trilogy."
The stories, soldiers and perseverance highlighted in this book are relevant to anyone in the job sector. Find more information at http://www.ElevatePub.com.
