Chris: So the Military Veterans Network is an awesome opportunity for veterans and also people who are friends of veterans to come together and really focus on this concept of service.

Kristin: I have just had deep admiration for those that have served our country.

Kristin: And in my opinion there’s really not that many ways to kind of express my appreciation, aside from saying thank you. And so this is one of the things I do, is, I want to interact with military and veterans and show my support and assist in any way possible, whether it be financially, volunteering. I just want to give back in some way to show that I appreciate everything that’s been done.

Marc: It’s great to work for a company like Charles Schwab, that supports veterans and everything that we stand for. And the biggest thing that a lot of veterans get is going to be leadership. And here Charles Schwab embraces that by going out and hiring veterans and focusing on that. It’s nice to know that the Charles Schwab Corporation sponsors a lot of events for the Military Veterans Network, as well as financially, and then also with just giving us the time off, paid time off, in order to do this, to where we can go out and help out our community and then also help out veterans and veteran-related projects. 

Chris: So I see service as being an opportunity to look beyond oneself, to be part of something bigger than oneself. And that’s something that really drew me to Schwab to begin with was the outreach to the community. There’s so many different ways to get out and get involved. And being a veteran, it really resonated with me to join the MVN to really facilitate that vision and really be part of something greater than myself.
