We Support Veterans:
Squadron is proud to have been a Hero Partner of Happy Joe. Happy Joe provides business mentoring, career development, training resources, and work opportunities to military veterans, military spouses, and military caregivers. Happy Joe exists because they can't stand seeing veterans and their families struggle after they leave the military. These men and women have incredible qualities and skills, but they face huge battles when they transition back into the civilian world. With an estimated 40% of our customers being U.S. veterans, this was a natural fit for a partnership.
