Veteran Voices at MetroStar

MetroStar launched Civvies in 2023, a bi-monthly podcast that shares veterans' experiences and knowledge. This award-winning show is excited to announce a new season and host with a brand new episode launching on Wednesday, April 24. 

Stephanie Holeman is a MetroStar technical recruiter and U.S. Army veteran. She is beyond excited to join the podcast as its host and share the voices of those in her community and beyond. "Hearing about the fire and passion they've found in their civilian pursuits is truly inspiring. Leaving the military community can often mean losing a sense of identity, so I'm eager to hear about the journey of self-recreation and how they've redefined themselves on the civilian side," Holeman said.

Elevating voices from various communities, including veterans' voices, is a common practice at MetroStar. For two decades, MetroStar has been proud to support veterans as they transition back to civilian roles or for the first time. 

This season's special episode features Tuskegee Airman Gen. Enoch Woodhouse. MetroStar's Senior Director of Growth and Strategy, Cedric George, stepped in as a guest host for the episode. As a retired Maj. Gen. in the U.S. Air Force, George was honored and ecstatic to talk with Woodhouse.

"It is an honor to stand on the shoulders of Giants, but it is rare that you get to be in the same room as them and talk candidly with them," said George. "General Woodhouse epitomizes the essence of greatness, and I had the chance to sit down with him and delve into his remarkable journey." 

This season's guests include advocates for veterans' transitions into civilian jobs, those dedicated to giving back to the community, and more. Check out our first three guests below.
