“Twenty-four years in the Army Reserve and 10 years as a master sergeant taught me a lot about leadership, attention to detail and the value of a chain of command—all of which I rely on daily as an assistant unit operator in TVA’s Fossil Operations. Many of the HU tools we used in the Army are also important to TVA as well. They may not have the same name, but things like peer checking, stopping when unsure, and pre- and post-job briefs help us avoid injuries so we’re going home at the end of each day the same way we arrived.”

“As a peace-time Navy veteran, my experience as an Instrument man helped me transition well into my job here at TVA, performing calibrations and instrumentation for the Nuclear Power Group. I find that there’s a kind of brotherhood among the crafts in TVA similar to what we knew in the military that you just don’t see in other industrial environments. It’s a bonding that makes me feel safe on the job, knowing that a brother or sister has my back.”
