Welcome to the Deep Leadership Podcast. In this episode, I am thrilled to have Lt. Col. (Ret) Kathy Lowrey Gallowitz, the Founder & CEO of Vanguard Veteran, on the show. Kathy has dedicated her career to serving her country and supporting veterans as they transition to civilian life. She brings her experience as a nurse and public affairs officer in the Air Force to her work as she equips civilian employers to become Veteran Champions.

Kathy’s organization, Vanguard Veteran, not only helps employers but also equips faith community leaders to build Military Ministries. In her book, “Beyond ‘Thank You For Your Service,’ The Veteran Champion Handbook for civilians,” Kathy outlines how employers and citizens can become Veteran Champions with ease. During our conversation, we will discuss the importance of hiring veterans, and how organizations can benefit from having them on their team.

Kathy’s experience and knowledge in this field make her an invaluable resource for anyone interested in supporting veterans as they transition to civilian life. Join me in this enlightening conversation as we learn about what it means to be a Veteran Champion and why it’s important to hire military veterans.
