Top Veteran Employers: Community Impact Category

top veteran employers impact the community

When one family member serves, the entire family serves. The stresses of war and everyday service tasks are not limited to the servicemembers. Cases of stress, depression, grief, and PTSD in family members of the service member are well-documented.

That is why MilitaryHire.com recognizes companies that not only serve our heroes but are also giving back to the community that supports veterans.

The Community Impact category highlights the community service programs for veterans that our Top 110 Veteran Employers are conducting to give back to veteran communities through their involvement and support of programs that assist, rehabilitate, and aid veteran families.
