WorkingNation chief content officer Joan Lynch saw firsthand how her father was able to use the skills and knowledge he learned in the military to build a successful civilian career. But she also saw other veterans who never got the chance to thrive in a career because hiring managers didn’t understand the value of what they had learned in service to the country.

Watch this animated conversation between Joan and her father, James Lynch, and read how the stories of veterans and work are personal to her and to WorkingNation.
