All about Conference...
A welcome message from Chris Helder, one of the amazing and inspiring main stage speakers at this year's conference.
WERC is proud to support Hiring Our Heroes!
Join us at this year's conference to hear A Journey of Courage, Injury, Resilience and Triumph - While on a routine combat patrol, an enemy sniper shot Justin Constantine in the head, causing catastrophic damage, destroying his jaws and much of his face. Since his injury, Justin has continued to lead and serve as a role model to other Wounded Warriors. Justin's personal awards include the Purple Heart, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Combat Action Ribbon, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal. WERC proudly welcomes this hero to our stage to share his story.
Through his journey of courage, injury, resilience and triumph, Justin demonstrates that we are all stronger than we think.
Read about Justin and his journey in The Atlantic article, "Wounded in Iraq: A Marine's Story."
Justin's presentation will be on Tuesday, April 29th. Check out the conference program for more details.
