"I'm particularly excited about Thursday's opportunities to network with military personnel who are considering careers in private security," notes Chuck Schneider, president and CEO of U.S. Security Associates.

There will be a special focus in the Careers Pavilion on military personnel transitioning into private security, with a discussion panel featuring security professionals who have successfully made the transition.
