Veterans find a place to work and grow their careers after the military

Sarasota, FL (November 5, 2015) – For three years, Kristin Hasson served her country in the U.S. Army. She worked as an administrative specialist supporting her fellow soldiers from a base in Germany. After she was honorably discharged, she eventually found her way to Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®. Today she works alongside several other veterans as she serves as a customer service representative helping customers in Chardon, Ohio.

Kent Naugle served during the Vietnam War. This disabled Army veteran was an operations sergeant working in artillery control. When he returned home from combat, he went back to work in the plumbing industry. Today he owns the Benjamin Franklin Plumbing serving the Tecumseh, Michigan area and is proud to have other veterans working on his team.

Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is ranked as one of the largest plumbing franchise organizations, with independently owned and operated locations throughout North America. There are more than 50 veterans throughout the organization. “Working in the skilled trades is an important service that helps our communities, so it’s very similar to what many of us did in the military,” said Mark Baker, President of Franchise and Lt. Col. U.S. Army, Retired.

In addition to continuing to serve their communities, many veterans are also drawn to Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for the career opportunities. There are several success stories of people starting as plumbers, being promoted to managers, and eventually owning their own Benjamin Franklin Plumbing companies. Many locations are currently hiring.
