Happy Veterans Day
ETM was founded in part by war veteran Bob Thims who voluntarily enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the height of the Vietnam War. From August 1966 to January 1967, aboard the aircraft carrier USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVB/CVA/CV-42),Bob deployed to war torn Vietnam in the Southeast Asian Sea. Undoubtedly, it was Bob’s military experience that influenced the core values ETM still embraces today.
There are very few cultures that shape people in the way the military does. Military Veterans have been a part of a culture that focuses on mission achievement, cooperation and personal development. They have experience working in and leading teams; adapting and performing well in fast-paced, stressful environments; and following directions precisely. They demonstrate integrity and loyalty, are committed to completing their work, are resilient to unpleasant working environments, and are accustomed to culturally diverse and global environments.
ETM knows that hiring Veterans is a sound investment. Though Bob was the first, a significant number of Veteran employees has joined the ETM family through the years. Currently, there are 16 military Veterans among our staff of 220 professionals.
To our own ETM Veterans and all the Veterans of our great country, we thank you for your service.Back to News
