Veterans who attended last week's Hiring Our Heroes resume workshop told TODAY.com that their military background has helped make them the best prospective job candidates.

Derek Coy, a former sergeant in the United States Marine Corp., joined in 2004 following his father's footsteps.
"I guarantee if you hire a veteran you're getting someone who is going to be devoted to what they do and work harder than everyone else."
