"For their service and sacrifice, warm words of thanks from a grateful nation are more than warranted, but they aren't nearly enough. We also owe our veterans the care they were promised and the benefits that they have earned. We have a sacred trust with those who wear the uniform of the United States of America. It's a commitment that begins at enlistment, and it must never end. But we know that for too long, we've fallen short of meeting that commitment. Too many wounded warriors go without the care that they need. Too many veterans don't receive the support that they've earned. Too many who once wore our nation's uniform now sleep in our nation's streets"



The Department of the Navy (DON) needs to attract and retain a skilled and talented workforce to advance the mission and support of the war fighter. The DON civilian workforce can provide veterans and wounded warriors the opportunity to serve their country. As a former service member, the civilian workforce is the perfect opportunity to continue your duty and diligence to the United States. Former service members currently comprise a large portion of DON civilian workforce, in civilian careers ranging from machinists to mechanics, sandblasters to scientists, intelligence analysts to IT specialists. Not only are civilian opportunities located in your commuting area, but DON’s workforce spans from California to New York, even Europe and Asia. No matter where you serve as a DON civilian, you are supporting the sailors and marines throughout the world.
