At Safelite AutoGlass, we are extremely thankful to our military men and women, and their families, for serving our country and providing and protecting the freedoms we enjoy as American citizens. Too many of our veterans are unemployed and we feel a sense of responsibility to be part of the solution. That’s why we’re a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020. Each member has committed to hire veterans, report their hiring number on a quarterly basis and share best practices.
We think they are crucial to our company because their skills and traits align closely with what we need from our employees. We recognize our performance is powered by our people who deliver customer service excellence through integrity, commitment, teaming, expertise and drive for extraordinary results. Hiring veterans with these traits just makes sense and is the right thing to do for our customers, our business and our nation.
With that in mind, we’ve been shining a spotlight on those who are already employed by Safelite who have served or are currently serving in the military.

Following his Father’s footsteps, Patrick enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, where he would spend over 20 years of his life serving our country.
As a communicator and speech writer, Patrick established forward headquarters for General Forgecroft in Desert Shield. His multi-tour enlistment took him across the world, traveling to many different countries, experiencing different aspects of various cultures most will never experience in their lifetime.
Patrick spent the last 4 years of his enlistment teaching customs and courtesies at Ohio State as a Master Sergeant.
“Respect is very important to me, not only for my country but my company as well,” he said. “I take teaching and sharing knowledge very seriously, as both are great motivators.”
Patrick motivates his fellow associates today just as he motivated his compadres in the Air Force. His vast amount of knowledge and ability to educate those around him has gained him much respect as a leader.
