    Doing Well by Doing Good - Helping Disabled Veterans Enter Our Profession

    The event is being fully sponsored by Drexel Hamilton.  As such, this will be a free luncheon event for CFA Society of Atlanta members and guests.

    In commemoration of Veteran’s Day, the CFA Society of Atlanta is facilitating a presentation by two distinguished disabled veterans to help us learn more about how we can assist the hundreds of thousands of disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and now seeking to re-enter the society they have so ably protected. 

    The conflicts of the last decade are unlike any other in American history.  Due to the nature of the conflict involving the use of roadside bombs, and mitigated by excellent medical attention which allows the injured to survive the battlefield, roughly one quarter of those who have served are returning home with a permanent disability.  Now they are attempting to re-enter society and take on meaningful employment to support their families and maintain their dignity.

    The non-profit Wall Street Warfighters Foundation provides a six-month training program to identify, develop, and place service disabled veterans in careers in the financial services industry.   Both of our speakers graduated from this program and now work in our profession.  Navy Lt. Cal Quinn, is a Naval Academy grad and gridiron star and served in Afghanistan in the month immediately after 9/11.  Injured on the battlefield, he faced a long recovery, graduated from the training program and has now undertaken a successful second career in equities.  Army Staff Sergeant Jerry Majetich suffered severe injuries after being targeted by Al Qaeda in Iraq and having his Humvee attacked by an IED.  He was awarded the Purple Heart by President Bush and enrolled in the Wall Street Warfighters Training program.  Today, he is a financial services professional working out of his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.

    Come and join us for this moving program and learn about how we can assist returning disabled veterans who seek meaningful employment in our profession.  Hiring a veteran may be the best investment you ever made.  The Wall Street Warfighters Foundation has received generous support from the CFA Institute and now the CFA Society of Atlanta is doing its part by hosting this event. The event is being fully sponsored by Drexel Hamilton.  As such, this will be a free luncheon event for CFA Atlanta members.
