“Years ago, we were given marching orders by company leadership to bring military heroes into our company because it was the right thing to do. Today, we find that it is the best business thing to do. We employ over 200 Missourian veterans and we are proud to partner with the state to get American heroes hired.” --Jarold Ramos, Sr., Director of Strategic Recruiting for AlliedBarton Security Services (& U.S. Navy Veteran)
