Lieutenant General John (Mike) Murray visited the OMA this week to talk about the Army, its soldiers and its contribution to the economy. The visit was one of several in central Ohio in a program aiming to deepen the Army’s engagement with communities, including the business community.
General Murray noted that the Army recruited 80,000 soldiers last year. Forty thousand of those will leave the army in four years and will be looking for employment.
As potential employees these soldiers will know how to work for a large organization, understand sacrifice for a team, be disciplined and show up on time, have been drug-free for four years and make good employees and good citizens.
General Murray is a Kenton, Ohio native (as is his wife), and a proud graduate of The Ohio State University.
