Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Raymond Nutter.

Raymond served as a chemical officer in the U.S. Army after graduating college in 2004. He deployed to Iraq from 2007 to 2008 as a human resources officer. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, he served with the 101st Airborne Division.

After leaving the service, he briefly worked in business development before returning to his hometown area near Chicago. Today, he is a major account executive with the recruiting company, Careerbuilder.com.

Thank you for your service, Raymond!
