“With a little coaching and mentoring, veterans can do amazing things,” Swaggert said. “I simply encourage companies to think about developing this next generation of talent. Each of us wants to go from ‘Capt. Swaggert’ and ‘Staff Sgt. Marks’ to Nick and Kyle. It just isn’t [as easy as] flipping a switch.”

Marks, who’s got a job with a future, is planning to enroll in college.

“Kyle was underutilized and this is an opportunity to give him a chance and to make more money and build a career,’’ Swaggert said. “And we’re helping ourselves, too, because he’s talented. We’re capturing that value that other people didn’t see.”
