Admiral: Returning NH veterans are worth hiring
That's the message Admiral Mike Mullen drove home during an appearance Wednesday at the University of New Hampshire Law's Warren B. Rudman Center in Concord.
Mullen was at the Rudman Center, along with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, to announce the launch of the Robert J. Dole fellowship program. The $1 million endowed fellowship honors the legacies of Sens. Robert "Bob" Dole and Warren Rudman by providing veterans with the opportunity to attend law school and use their legal education to assist veterans.
"The legal questions and situations that veterans deal with can be unique," Broderick said.
"Receiving a law school education is not inexpensive — too expensive if you ask me," said Broderick. "We hope to have the first fellowship student here this August, and now we need to raise the funds." Mullen was assigned the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Oct. 1, 2007, having served in the Navy for over 40 years. He retired in 2011. Mullen spoke Wednesday about the challenges that lie ahead for men and women in uniform and the best way to prepare for those challenges.
"The number-one thing I am asked by employers is how hiring a veteran can help their businesses," said Mullen. "I always say the bottom line is, it will help your bottom line. They are tremendously dedicated, loyal, disciplined young people. They have life experiences under pressure that are very difficult to describe. They're great in a team. They have exceptional skills that translate directly to the civilian workforce."
