Active Duty & Retired Military
Active duty military personnel make great sacrifices to protect us and preserve our many freedoms, and so do their families. While serving in our military is a highly honorable profession, the pay is modest, the hours are long, the work is dangerous and for many, the job requires lengthy periods of family separation. When military service ends, veterans find that the transition back to civilian life presents a new set of issues such as finding suitable employment, and, for some new veterans, overcoming the challenges of physical and mental injuries sustained in combat.
Our veteran and active duty military families need and deserve our support. Hillier Ignite is focusing on two of the areas where help is most needed: veteran unemployment and military family support. Both directly and through partnerships with other organizations, we focus on providing career and educational opportunities by creating greater awareness of the benefits of hiring veterans, assisting veterans in the development of entrepreneurial businesses, and providing college tuition assistance to military families.
