The importance of continuing to learn, the value of discipline and prioritization, and the benefit of being allowed to make mistakes are all lessons veterans took from their military service.

During November, CUNA News is sharing stories of people in the credit union movement who have served in the military and how those experiences have shaped their credit union careers in A Salute to Veterans, sponsored by FIS.

In this episode of the CUNA News Podcast, six veterans share the lessons they learned in the military that have been useful in their credit union careers.
