Across the country, there are many businesses who have stepped forward in the effort to end unemployment amongst veterans. Cintas has proven to be a leader amid this group and, therefore, will receive one of five awards that will be presented at this Friday’s Salute gala.

Cintas ranked No. 11 on the list of “Top 50 Military-Friendly Employers” as chosen by G.I. Jobs magazine. “Hiring America’s military veterans is a smart business decision for which all of the top 50 companies should be commended,” stated Chris Hale, General Manager of G.I. Jobs magazine. Cintas’ Senior Human Resources Manager, Tanner Chapman, went on to say, “We are proud to partner with military programs like ARVets to help recruit and employ veterans.

“Their culture isn’t so different. The world is much smaller. We are closer to people than we think.”

Chief Warrant Officer Cornelius Charles joined the Army National Guard on July 26, 1990. Originally from McGehee, Arkansas, he enlisted in search of better opportunities and hopes of furthering his schooling through military educational funding.

On his 2005 tour to Iraq, Charles learned just how small the world really is. “Being able to serve and the gratitude from the people when you’re in uniform makes you feel proud,” he says. The one of a kind experience of helping people who needed him taught him discipline and leadership.
