Our veterans of the United States Armed Forces have placed their civilian lives on hold while serving our country at home and abroad. As these men and women retire from the military we at the Keller Law Offices wish to thank them for their years of service. Each year we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to a military veteran or immediate family member to help him/her receive the training needed for their chosen civilian career.

Describe the two most important things you learned about life during your military career and how these may have affected your civilian career choice.
Discuss what advice you would give to a younger person whose parent(s) is serving in the United States Armed Forces.
