The maritime industry has recently started looking to military Veterans to fill certain job positions, given the skills and strong work ethic that many Veterans posses. However, maritime jobs come with some potential dangers.
The article on this site aimed at making Veterans aware of the dangers involved in maritime jobs. The maritime industry can provide some great opportunities for Veterans, but make sure they are aware of the risks.
