USVM’s goal is to open up employment, business and supplier opportunities within the federal government and corporate America for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners. The annual review is an evaluation of the nation's employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions. These studies are valuable resources for jobseekers, business owners, students, consumers, senior management, business associations, employment agencies and consumer groups.
“Veterans are entrepreneurial, they assume high levels of trust, and they’re resilient,” says Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of the U.S. Veterans Magazine. “This magazine was created to support our troops, and we at USVM are proud to recognize other businesses that are also making veterans a priority.”
