GrayWolves: Veterans Day Event a Huge Succcess

Wireless Warriors Lead the Pack

  • 19 January 2015

Teltech Communications’ sister organization, GrayWolves Telecom, and non-profit partnering organization, Warriors 4 Wireless, hosted a Veteran’s Day luncheon in Carrollton, Texas. Wireless Warriors Lead the Pack, an event to salute military veterans enrolled in a special wireless infrastructure training program, welcomed roughly 75 telecom industry professionals and noteworthy community leaders. Industry guest speakers included Jonathan Adelstein, CEO and President of PCIA-The Wireless Infrastructure Association, Kelley Dunne, CEO of Warriors 4 Wireless, Jim Tracey, President of Legacy Telecommunications Inc., and Monty West, EVP of Goodman Networks. Teltech also had the honor of hosting guest speaker Bob Garza, Mayor Pro Tem of Carrollton. Together, these guest speakers demonstrated how important industry and community support are, not only to the GWT and W4W program, but to America’s veteran-heroes.

Wireless Warriors Lead the Pack highlighted the veterans enrolled in the GWT and W4W program that will prepare them for highly rewarding careers in the wireless infrastructure industry. There is large demand for high-skilled wireless workers in Texas and across the country. Simultaneously, there is a large number of unemployed veterans. The event brought attention to the great need to fill these jobs and in turn, source jobs to the men and women who have eminently sacrificed for our freedom. Numerous military veterans have already been sent into the wireless infrastructure field after graduation from the program.

The workforce is the backbone to wireless expansion. GWT and W4W partnership provides meaningful careers in an industry that is growing exponentially. It is Teltech and GWT’s mission and responsibility to continue to repay a debt our society owes these brave men and women. The importance of employing America’s veterans deserves nationwide attention, across all industries. Teltech intends to lend a hand on ending veteran unemployment.
