We're observing Memorial Day by focusing on those veterans coming home from live war zones, as well as those who left the World War II Theater decades ago. First, we have advice and assistance for returning war vets to reenter the job market, followed by the memoirs of a WWII veteran from his experience as an American Jewish soldier. Our first guest is Lida Citroen of LIDA 360, who tells us about what inspired her to put her corporate branding skills to work in a way that would benefit soldiers transitioning into the civilian workforce. Her book, Your Next Mission: A Personal branding guide for the military-to-civilian transition, is packed with practical advice on how to recount military and war-time experience in a way employers will understand and find valuable. As well as how to determine what career culture is the right fit, which is determined by the individual, experience and comfort level.
Her book is available on her website, on Amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble. If you would like to help sponsor a supply of these books to a military installation, or veteran's service organization, contact Lida through her website.
Next, we bring you a conversation with father and son, Robert "Bud" Sabetay and David Sabetay. After the junior Sabetay published a book of guiding principles, his father mentioned an interest in writing his memories of his experience in World War II. With a publishing company already in place, it was only natural to publish another book.
That is how Memoirs of an American Jewish Soldier: From the Heartland of America to the Frontline of the Third Reich. Bud shares a unique perspective of his life as a Private, and the subtle and not-so-subtle prejudices he experienced as a Jewish Soldier in the war against the Nazi's.
Bud shares his stories with a razor sharp memory, humor, and the most charming sound effects! His book is available at Sabetay publishing.
