Looking Back: Nick Calvetti, US Army Ret.
Amherst Label owner Nicholas E. Calvetti, Jr., was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1969 during the Viet Nam era. He had just finished his formal education in the field of accounting at Bentley College and the University of Colorado. With both a Bachelors degree and a Masters degree, he was eventually assigned to the finance corps but started out training as a medic, learning how to dispense shots and care for injuries.
In the finance corps, Nick achieved the rank of specialist 5th class—the approximate equivalent of a sergeant— and served for two years using his background in inventory and accounting.
Private Calvetti was stationed at Fort Richardson Army base, neighbor to Elmendorf Air Force base in Anchorage, Alaska, a long way from his roots in Milford, New Hampshire. He had no trouble making friends because, according to Nick’s recollection, the other soldiers thought “finance meant payroll, so finance people were popular with the troops.” It didn’t matter that Nick had nothing to do with payroll in his job in inventory in the Px and commissary. He remembers working in a small office with two civilian office workers. And to add to his army pay, Nick had an extra job doing custodial work in the command center, keeping trash cans emptied and floors clean.
The boss’s two years of Army experience prompted members of the Amherst Label team to apply for certification as a veteran-owned company, a designation Amherst Label earned in 2014.
One of our newest employees, Marine Cliff Ingalls retired in 1991 as a Lance Corporal (LCPL). Cliff runs our receiving and stock department. And Maria Schweizer, Navy Vet, is an inspector and packager here.
“We are proud to be Veteran-owned and certified and prouder still to work with other Veterans,” says Nick Calvetti.
