For Employers

All across Southern California, Veterans of our armed forces have returned home after serving courageously on the world’s battlefields.  Local businesses can give these veterans the ultimate ‘thank you’ by hiring them and allowing them the opportunity for employment.

Many businesses have come to recognize how Veterans and members of our Active Duty, and National Guard, and Reserve forces possess the degree of training, education, motivation, and character that will prove vital to California’s economic future.  We encourage you to consider what our Veterans have endured for each of us as well as the benefits to your business when you look first to Veterans when hiring.
