JK Moving Services became the first moving company to sign a Statement of Support with the District of Columbia National Guard in a ceremony with Brigadier General (Ret) Lawrence Gillespie. The Sterling-based company committed to employing those serving in the National Guard Reserves and supporting the reservists even while training and deployed.
“We are honored to deepen our relationship with the National Guard. JK Moving has a long history of providing career opportunities to veterans transitioning, active military members, and the National Guard and Reserve. We value the leadership, reliability and dedication that armed forces members bring to our team,” CEO Chuck Kuhn said.
The company’s commitment to service members also includes participating in a new pilot program with the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration that helps more qualifying service members between the ages of 18 and 21 to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License. In addition, the company is partnering with the Army Reserves via the Private Public Partnership program to provide soldiers with unique training opportunities. JK also works with the Wounded Warrior Regiment located at Fort Belvoir to help those who have returned from combat missions to transition into the civilian sector.
JK has a team of recruiters that specifically works with military candidates to understand military skills experience and training to find career opportunities that best align with their knowledge, skills, and capabilities.
