Service in Action

The mission of the Lumen VETS employee resource group is to help veterans, their families and friends, to realize their potential and impact their communities. To support and participate in company policies and programs in which veterans are respected, valued, and afforded equal opportunities. 
“My service as a US Army Military Police soldier gave me exposure to lots of different cultures and ways of life. I found that during my tenure in the Army, respecting others and holding myself to high standards of integrity goes a long way in communicating with others, especially in my time here at Lumen.”

“Serving in the United States Navy, I learned the importance of having a strong Commitment to Excellence. There was a high level of dedication among everyone in my squadron to consistently perform at their very best. I see that same level of commitment daily in each and every one of 
my colleagues at Lumen.

“The USAF taught me respect is important on many levels. From the start of basic, to my last squadron, our teamwork created respect and camaraderie among diverse individuals from a variety of backgrounds. We learned to respect and appreciate our differences, remaining focused together on our team’s objectives. I learned to respect the process, keeping attention to detail. I am grateful that for the past 20 years here at Lumen, I have experienced that same level of respect with partners across all levels including the Vets Group and the other ERGs.”

“My time in the United States Air Force, inspired many core values like positive attitude and perseverance. When I became an employee at Lumen, I was able to use those values inside my work organization and as a Lumen Vets ERG Leader.  Keeping a positive attitude is infectious and inspiring. No matter the situation, we can come together for a purpose to succeed as a team.

"My training and experience in the United States Navy has led me to conclude that atop the list of things keeping me at Lumen is the integrity of the people surrounding me.  We all have our personal definition of what integrity actually is and for me it’s doing the right things for the right reasons, always.  At Lumen, specifically within the Public Sector and the Veteran’s ERG I’m surrounded by
​​​​​​​people with this shared perspective.
