On the heels of Memorial Day, Roth Staffing Companies (the parent company of Ultimate Staffing) is honored to recognize the many active service members and veterans of the United States military as our Roth Heroes of the Week!
Bullets whistled into the aircraft mid-flight, compelling a crash landing in a hostile area outside of the city and a harrowing attempt to escape on foot amidst sniper fire. That's what life was like for one of our Regional Vice Presidents, Rob Parker. He served as a U.S. Marine Corps Helicopter Crew Chief and Air Crew Gunner in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as an intelligence official at the Pentagon. For 11 years, his life centered upon a commitment to protect and serve the United States.
That commitment continues into the present; today, he supports The Battle Buddy Foundation, which removes dogs from shelters and trains them to assist veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
But Rob is not our Roth Hero of the Week, nor would he accept the honor. Rob and several of the veterans employed at Roth Staffing Companies have said, "In the armed forces you are not an individual, you are a unit … a team." Rob is one face, one name, of the cohesive group of selfless soldiers who serve to protect our freedom on home soil and overseas.
On behalf of all the remarkable veterans at Roth Staffing, we are proud to recognize the heroic service members currently serving at home and overseas, and the veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. You're our Roth Heroes!
