Scott's View: Veterans Advantage Thanks GE for Support

Scott Higgins, Veterans Advantage and Jeff Immelt, GE

As a member of The Wings Club, the premier society of aviation professionals, I frequently have the opportunity to meet the top leaders in the global aviation industry.

At a recent Wings Club lunch, I connected with Jeffrey Immelt who is Chief Executive Officer of GE. I congratulated Jeff on the special recognition the Wings Club awarded his top-ranked Fortune 500 company for its innovations in jet engine technology, but I especially wished to thank him for his company’s support of Veterans Advantage.

Five years ago, GE served as our Presenting Sponsor for our inaugural launch of Veterans Week NYC and helped us produce our first full week of events to honor our nation’s veterans. I was proud to tell Jeff that this is now an annual New York gathering and has become one of our country’s largest and most significant events recognizing and thanking veterans for their service. We will be celebrating our 6th year on November 5th-12th.

In addition, I let Jeff know that we greatly appreciate GE’s engagement with our Veterans Advantage Jobs & Career Network, where his company posts open positions it seeks to fill with veterans. GE is one the most military-friendly employers in the world, with more than 10,000 veterans in its workforce. If you are a veteran looking to enhance your career with a position at GE, you can check out GE job posts in our Jobs and Career Network.

VetFamily: Michael Jordan Military & Veterans Life VetFamily: Michael Jordan The grit. The discipline. The stamina.  These are part of what made Michael Jordan one of the best basketball players in history. But they’re also qualities of two of his family members who served in the military: James Jordan Sr., his father, in the Air Force, and James Jordan Jr., Michael’s older brother, in the Army. All three Jordans possessed the team loyalty and leadership capability required for a life in service on or off the court.
