Allison Transmission Recognized in Episode of Military Makeover Operation Career airing on Lifetime TV
The company will be featured in an April 29 episode of a special series chronicling organizations providing employment opportunities to military veterans.
INDIANAPOLIS, April 27, 2021 – Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of vehicle propulsion solutions for tactical wheeled and tracked Defense vehicles, medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles and a leader in electrified propulsion systems, will appear on Military Makeover Operation Career airing on Lifetime TV. This special edition series captures the stories of military veterans who are transitioning to civilian life and the organizations providing employment opportunities to these veterans to ensure a successful transition.
Allison makes a difference in the lives of military veterans seeking civilian employment through its veteran recruitment initiative. The episode, which airs on Thursday, April 29 and Friday, May 7, chronicles the stories of Allison employees who have excelled with the company after accomplished careers in the U.S. military.
“Allison’s long history of supporting the U.S. military dates back to 1917, when we first began engineering and production support for World War I aircraft engines,” said Dana Pittard, U.S. Army Veteran and VP, Defense Programs at Allison Transmission. “Today, Allison provides transmissions for all wheeled U.S. Defense vehicles larger than the HMMWV, and more than half of the U.S. military’s tracked combat vehicles so a career at Allison is a very natural fit for veterans. We are proud to give back to those who have served our country in uniform through our recruitment initiative.”
With an estimated 200,000 U.S. service members transitioning to civilian life each year, creating new opportunities for veterans is an ongoing challenge. Allison believes that the unique experiences and skillsets that military veterans bring to the organization make them valued members of the Allison team. The company attributes its continued success to the diverse skills, experiences and backgrounds each professional brings to the organization.
