Orion Alumni in the News

Did you know that the success that Orion alumni experience in their civilian endeavors often gets the attention of the press? In August, alumnus Paul Andrews, a Navy Sonar Technician working at Sonardyne, a sonar imaging company, spoke at and introduced First Lady Michelle Obama at an event at NS Mayport. The event marked the 125,000 hire through Joining Forces and was covered in the news, as well as on the White House blog.

Andrews was not the only alumnus to speak at an event with the First Lady, though. Michael Abitago, a Specialist in the Army now employed with Kansas City Southern Railyway, thanked Mrs. Obama for his job during another Joining Forces event. And Orion alumna, Heatherann Bozeman has been interviewed for multiple stories on hiring veterans. She was an Army Captain who now works for Layne Christensen, a water management company.

These are just a few of the many outstanding Orion alumni who continue to be a part of the national narrative on hiring veterans. Check out our webpage to read stories about other Orion alumni who have made the news!
