"Discipline, integrity and commitment to the mission are in high demand on our mining team, and the lessons I learned in the service directly translate to the work I do. Being my brother’s keeper, always giving 100 percent and the willingness to accept a challenge are things I learned in uniform and carry with me to my worksite every day."

– Jeremy Pompeo, Tailings Senior Supervisor-Morenci and Sergeant First Class in the Army National Guard
