"Hiring veterans is a priority for AlliedBarton and the Show-Me Heroes program works with America's heroes to connect them with employment opportunities that match their skills learned in the military. The security services industry is an ideal career for transitioning veterans and reservists and we are honored to work with the men and women who have proudly served our country."
