Veterans Day 2013
Thank you to all of the veterans across the country, especially the 6,353 at Huntington Ingalls Industries. Uniforms may change, but character never does.
It appeared The Mississippi Press, the Press-Register and The Times-Picayune on Sunday, Nov. 10, and the Daily Press, The Virginian Pilot and The Sun Herald on Monday, Nov. 11. Download the ad.
Words from our veterans
Working at Ingalls allows me to demonstrate every day the core values I learned and lived in the Air Force for eight years: "Integrity first," "Service before self" and, most of all, "Excellence in all we do."
I believe a successful employee is made up 25 percent education, 25 percent experience, and 50 percent character, desire and motivation. Those last three are intangible skills that are not normally put on a resume, but the Navy instilled them in me.
