HOUSTON, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Wednesday May 31st, 2017 Memorial Day gives us an opportunity to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation, and Houston companies like ABACUS Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical work hard to honor military members and veterans 365 days a year. For many members of the military, leaving the armed services can be a difficult transition. Some find it exciting to have newfound freedom and opportunity, but many feel lost and unsure about what do next.

Every day, 22 veterans commit suicide, citing the inability to transition into real life. National programs like ‘Retail Ready‘ partner with companies like ABACUS by training vets to be HVAC-certified, giving them an opportunity for a new career. These are competitive, high-paying HVAC careers that will help them build a new life.

ABACUS recently videoed some of these great veterans (see attached) more videos can be seen on the FB page.

«Our veterans tell us time and time again that they take great pride in being independent, a provider for their family, and most importantly not needing handouts or charity,» said ABACUS HVAC hiring manager Mr. David Sosa. «I am proud to work for a company that works hard to hire our nation’s veterans, and I’m excited to say we are now hoping to hire as many as we can.»

If you know a veteran who wants a new career or is need of change, contact Mr. Sosa at (713) 812-7070.
