"TVA assisted me with a successful transition to civilian life."
Joseph ended his tour of duty with the Marine Corps on April 11, 2011. While on Active duty, he served as a Combat Engineer, where he earned awards for providing engineering support to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Commanding General, during multiple demolition and reconstruction projects throughout the southern end of Camp Pendleton. As a Non-Commissioned Officer, he was honored with the opportunity to train with Marine Corps New Equipment Training Team, along-side Marine Corps Special Operations Command. Additionally, while on active duty he served as a Military Police officer.
After separated from active duty military status I worked many menial jobs while attending college, most of which were construction oriented. Although I had been separated from the military for over three years before I was contacted by the Veteran’s Asset the timing could not have been more perfect for me; my family and I were about to embark on a cross-country relocation, and I had no leads on suitable employment. Fortunately The Veteran’s Asset not only sponsored my N.A.B.C.E.P. training and testing, but they also helped place me into a position within the Solar Photovoltaic industry. Even After job placement TVA continues to promote personal growth as well as provide continuous on-the-job training.
"TVA provide me training and jump-started my solar career!
Because of the training TVA introduced me to, I was able to win a job with a local and growing solar company, with many new opportunities arising. Everyone here is a part of the Team, and we are encouraged to work with each other’s strengths and weaknesses for the overall good of the projects. It makes working not really seem like work.
