Veterans’ Stories

Meet an Oregon Lottery Employee and Vet

Kevin Ehlers is one of many Oregon Lottery employees who bring their military skills and experience to work and, in the process, help make our workplace a better place.

As a Navy Veteran, Kevin Ehlers looks back on his military service fondly. “After my time in the navy, I think it really helped make me who I am. It’s instilled in me confidence for myself and taught me empathy,” he says. At the Lottery’s Salem office, Kevin still relies on the discipline and strong work ethic that he learned during his time in the military. He says, “I think that everybody should serve…. Your service teaches you responsibility and builds character.”
