Brian Stith, senior compliance auditor, is one of 260 veterans who work for VCU Health System. He served four years as United States Army Airborne Infantryman and was a sergeant (ES) / team leader in C Company, 2nd Battalion of the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment in Fort Bragg. Brian’s unit was deployed to Kosovo in 1999, the first United States unit into the country as part of a NATO task force. “Our assignment was primarily to protect civilians, subdue violent uprisings and generally keep the peace after an ethnic cleansing campaign. It was actually quite rewarding in that we made strong connections with small town inhabitants who we were often tasked to protect.”

Brian was honorably discharged in 2000, and attended college at UNC Chapel Hill. He started auditing PHARMA programs for more than 10 years, which had him travel to VCU Health two to three times a year. “I liked Richmond, and liked VCU. The staff I worked with took pride in their work and the Health System had a good reputation. I guess it was the people who made me consider a career here the most. My wife and I decided this would be a good fit for us.
