Our Veterans Community

Salute Mission Critical is proud of veterans in the data center industry who have effectively transitioned from military to civilian careers. Their success serves as an example for veterans considering working in this industry. Each veteran’s story is different but what is common is their commitment to the Salute mission.

Salute Veterans Council

Members of the Veterans’ Council are solicited for their unique knowledge and industry experience as well as the subtle differences of each branch they served when planning new initiatives. We are grateful for their support to Salute as patrons and advisers as this helps ensure success in achieving our shared vision of solving veterans unemployment and the data center industry personnel shortage.
