Hire a Veteran Day Danny C.

Veterans are always honored at Harvest of OH, and they experience our gratitude through fantastic, daily discounts! Although Hire A Veteran Day occurs only once a year, we encourage veterans to be hired on a daily basis. Danny Couch, our Dispensary Evaluator, works hard to improve all aspects of the dispensary experience at each of our locations and ensure that efficiency is a top priority at Harvest of OH.

Q: What do you like most about working at Harvest of OH?

I really appreciate the family atmosphere and the personal care shown in service by every employee, from the budtenders to the cultivators to the leadership and everyone in between.

Q: What advice do you have for other veterans in the workplace?

My advice would be to use your resources to your advantage when coming out of the military—check with your local government offices to see if there is an opening. You have an edge if you’re a veteran, which led to me getting a position at the post office when they discovered I was a veteran.for our patients.

Q:As a veteran, what does working in medical marijuana mean to you?

It allows me to help other people the same way I was helped by the goodness of cannabis. Working in cannabis gave me the ability to spread the word about how it can help by telling other people my own story.

Q: In what ways do you feel medical marijuana can help other veterans?

I swear by the use of cannabis for pain; it really helped with my back pain, and I would recommend it to all veterans and anyone else for pain management.

Q: How long were you in the military?

I was enlisted for 4 years before I was discharged in June 1980 as an E-4 Senior Airman.

Q: What branch of the military did you serve in?

I served in the Air Force.

Q:How has your time in the military prepared you for the workforce?

My job in the Air Force was in supply, and I was trained to be an inventory management specialist. I worked in the computer room distributing computer reports, key-punching, and changing and maintaining reports for different documents. At my later jobs, it really helped me out with inventory and stocking shelves.

Q:What was your first job coming out of the military?

My first job after discharge was in auto parts sales, and I took computer programming classes in the evening.

Q:What did you learn about yourself during your time in the military?

I joined at 17, so I learned to grow up. Being in the Air Force taught me about life and how to work. I was a shy kid—not that talkative—so I had to work on my communication skills. I also learned more about my strengths. I could do a lot more than I thought, and I was stronger than I thought. During my time at the post office, I didn’t think I would make 2 weeks, but I ended up working for 35 years. After a few months, I got used to it. It gave me an inner toughness I didn’t know I had.

Q: What are some fun things you and your friends did together while in service?

For fun, we had a recreation center where I loved playing pool and ping-pong. We also played football and basketball.
