We have the great honor of meeting many veterans. Since we are certified to train disabled vets through our school, we spend quality time with these heroes. These are amazing individuals with a perspective on life that has taught me so much about humility and commitment.
Our mantra is to “help the go-getters and the go-givers”. Veterans are both. They have actively served our country with their lives and given so much muscle and brain power to the peacekeeping mission of the military. We have a compassion for Veterans. Many come from challenging backgrounds and have no other option for their life than to sign up to serve. They did what they needed to get the government benefits of service, which includes training in a new career. We take that benefit very seriously. We know it was not earned easily. What an honor to be a part of their new journey.
I actually started my adulthood in a similar same spot. I thought I had no future because I didn’t have the brains nor the money to go to college. I thought I would live a paycheck to paycheck, barely squeaking by. With the help of God, some teachers who believed in me and my amazing wife I have found success. I try to never take that for granted. My success is a gift I want to share with others.
In order to be certified to train military we completed a lot of reports. My wife, Janis has spent countless hours preparing immaculate reports. We are regularly audited which requires large amounts of documentation. She stays on top of all of this so we can continue to train these men and women of integrity.
We have a group of freight brokers who are at our door every course wanting to hire our veteran graduates to become agents. These guys don’t call in sick.
Probably the most important thing we teach them is how to be an entrepreneur. We teach what they should do every day between 8-9 a.m. then what they should do from 9-10 a.m. and so on through out the day. So many end up in grateful tears because they have never been taught these things. Gratitude is the healthiest of emotions.
My promise to veterans is that everyone associated with Brooke Training finds it a great honor and privilege to work with vets. We thank you for your service and would love to have you in our class.
