HR Minion

Being an Army Brat myself, I can understand the conflict that a lot of families go through when a loved one wants to join the military. You respect their dedication and bravery while you worry about losing them. He has a tough job. However, whatever people may think of the war or the military, it is still an honor to serve. It is not a right, it is a privilege.


As an Army Recruiting officer in the early '70's I had several soldiers working for me that faced the difficulties that SFC Usie and his fellow recruiters face today. Viet Nam was ending and the all volunteer Army was beginning. The recruiters wore their uniforms with pride but were riduculed and chased from schools by fellow American citizens. As an HR practitioner for 25+ years I have tried to take jobs with organizations that hire former soldiers (and other service members) because I know the work ethics of these people. I wonder - do the recruiters of today have to work part-time jobs to make ends meet?
