Veteran Success at SEL


“One of the things you learn in the military is this idea of ‘troop welfare’. Troop welfare is very important, and I see that at SEL all the time,” says Carlos Medina, a veteran who served in the Marines for five years and now works as an Associate Buyer at SEL in the Purchasing department.

Medina, like many other military veterans, knows the struggle of transitioning back to civilian life. One thing that makes the transition easier is finding a place where you feel like you still matter, where you can take on responsibility, be part of a team, and make a difference.

“The thing about SEL is that I’m a person; I’m somebody that makes a difference,” says Medina. “SEL values integrity, discipline, customer focus, and dignity of work, which are all things we take pride in when we’re in the service. We do a very good job of always trying to better ourselves, and I love that about being here. You’re always being pushed to succeed and be better. That gives you a sense of ownership and hope. It gives you direction.”
