Darrell RobertsAt the recent TAUC State of the Union Construction Industry Forum held in Washington, D.C. on December 10, 2014, Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) Executive Director Darrell Roberts gave an impassioned presentation on his organization's mission to help exiting military personnel find good job opportunities in the union construction and maintenance industry, whether in the trades or working for union contractors in management positions.
