(Leavenworth, KS, November 1, 2018) In 2013, retired colonels Bob Ulin, Willard Snyder, and Rolly Dessert formed a tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation to help retiring service members and veterans transition to meaningful leadership positions in the private sector. To date 105 individuals from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Department of Army civilians, in every rank from PFC to Command Sergeant Major and from 1st Lt. to Brig. Gen, and individuals from the Senior Executive Service have participated in our program. Fifty-eight percent have secured employment in the private sector, 17 percent have gone into local, state, and federal government service, 9 percent are still looking for work, and 16 percent remain on active duty. Twelve of our associates have secured employment as vice president or C-level executives, another eleven have become directors and managers of companies large and small.
Funding for our programs over the years has come from individuals, companies, and other nonprofit organizations like the Breidenthal-Snyder Foundation, the CGSC Foundation, the David Woods Kemper Veterans Foundation, the Gary Sinise Foundation, the JE Dunn Family Foundation, the Kauffman Foundation, the Spencer Duncan Make-it-Count Foundation, the Tim and Karen Carlin Foundation, and the VFW Foundation.
