About Military Veteran Solutions
Military Veteran Solutions (“MVS”) was founded in May 2011 by Sergeant Major Frank E. Pulley, USMC (Ret.) to help “open doors” for highly reputable and truly “military/veteran friendly” entities that possess and demonstrate a sincere desire to “serve those who have served”.
Sergeant Major Pulley’s Marine Corps career spanned over 30 years. He served in a wide variety of assignments in both the USA and overseas, including successful tours on special duty as a recruiter and drill instructor. Frank’s last assignment was as the Sergeant Major of the 1st Marine Division located in Camp Pendleton, CA.
Since leaving active duty in 2008, Frank has been instrumental in assisting transitioning service members. He is the West Coast Representative for the Marine Corps Association (MCA) and is a current member of the Secretary of the Navy’s Retiree Council. Frank was also formerly the president of a Transition Services Organization (TSO) before he founded Military Veteran Solutions.
We are of the mindset that the majority of companies in the private sector want to “do the right thing” for military veterans who have served honorably. However, at times they may be unsure as to the most effective way to implement their military recruiting strategy or how to gain access or conduct business on or around military installations.
We have an extensive list of established and well-respected contacts (military and civilian) located throughout the USA. We work with those contacts to help assist reputable companies increase their visibility, awareness and overall presence in the military community. In turn, this not only “opens doors” for potential employers, but just as importantly it can “open doors” for potential employees: Veterans! In doing so, this can help reduce the staggering veteran unemployment and underemployment rates.
To do this, we personally screen (“vet”) interested companies. We also conduct periodic reviews to ensure that the services being provided remain relevant.
We continually cultivate a list of vetted “Military/Veteran Friendly” approved (“A” List) companies. We provide these updated “A” lists to the respective Transition Assistance representatives at various military installations.
We also conduct a wide range of presentations aboard military bases. ONLY those companies we have vetted are presented in our briefs.
We deliver talks, keynote addresses and are available to participate in panel discussions for any of your organizational needs.
We also provide job placement assistance in various industries.
