August 14th, 2018 | FIVE DECADES OF THE GLOBE & LAUREL The Globe & Laurel restaurant, Marine Corps veteran Rick Spooner's historic pub, celebrates 50 years
Retired Marine Corps Maj. Rick Spooner, now 92, said he and his wife, Gloria, opened the Globe & Laurel restaurant 50 years ago out of a desire to serve those who put everything—even their lives—on the line for the love of their country.
“They deserved a place they could gather and enjoy the company of other like-minded individuals,” Spooner said. His posture was ramrod straight, and he sported a full head of white crewcut hair and a pencil-thin mustache. “I wanted to give them a comfortable place to relax, have a drink, a bite to eat—a home.”

Cybersecurity skills are in high demand, and employers are challenged with finding the right talent to build their expanding workforce needs. At the same time, thousands of veterans are looking to apply their unique skills as they transition to civilian jobs. At Cisco, we see this as an opportunity to build a bridge between a targeted talent pipeline and our ecosystem of employers and partners.
On June 26, over 70 veterans attended the Virginia Veterans Cyber Training (VVCT) orientation at the Quantico Corporate Center, located across from of Quantico Marine Base, one of the largest Marine Corps installations in the United States. The VVCT, pioneered by Cisco, is a free accelerated online program offering cyber training from Cisco, Amazon Web Services, (ISC)2, Palo Alto Networks, and Fortinet. These companies, who in some cases are also direct business competitors, have come together for a common cause to provide veterans access to learning pathways which lead to industry-recognized certifications.
