Thank You Veterans – Carnival Cruise Line – Veteran Appreciation Ceremony

Last week I had the opportunity to take a cruise on the Carnival Cruise ship Breeze out of Galveston, TX for a 7 day Caribbean cruise that was fantastic!  The staff, the weather, the excursions all were outstanding!  What I found to truly be amazing though was that Carnival conducted a Veteran Appreciation Event on Friday – that was truly moving and amazing!   Carnival had an hour Veteran Appreciation Event at the main Ovation Theatre led by Mike Pack the Cruise Director and it was again – outstanding!

***Testimonials***

You are surrounded in an environment where people want to see you succeed, an environment that allows you to recognize your fears and then run right through them. The FMI experience was about as far as you can get from my personal comfort zone. I was forced to expand my mind and adapt to my surroundings. Now there’s no forcing to be done; I’m ready, willing and able dive into the next training exercise. I came away with a renewed sense of confidence, an awakening of my passion for excellence and a deepened appreciation of teamwork. I learned the true meaning of “got your six” and am proud to be a member of my Elite Leader Team. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to shake things up a bit in their organization. You won’t be disappointed.

DSCN0938 (2)

On July 22, Forward March Inc. and the Missouri National Guard hosted a Job Fair at Camp Crowder in Neosho, MO. The job fair was an opportunity for employers to see Soldiers and Officers in their environment  during their two week annual training.

Employers from Neosho, Joplin and surrounding areas came and set up booths for Soldiers to learn more about their companies and open positions and then got to brave the heat and tour the camp and experience first hand what the Soldiers do during the Annual Training, like the repel tower and obstacle course.

Forward March Inc. and the MO National Guard work closely to help facilitate better opportunities for both employers and Soldiers.
