We are proud to employ U.S. military veterans, who make up 23 percent of our workforce, and are grateful to once again be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer. We respect the commitment and dedication that active duty military and veterans take to protect our country and they deserve the opportunity to have a successful and rewarding civilian career. We work hard to provide them the resources they need to translate their military skills into civilian skills.
