Veteran and Cleared Talent

Overview

Honoring Your Service

Long retired veterans, transitioning service members, and those currently serving will find support and community right outside the nation’s capital.

Northern Virginia has a dedicated connection to the military. With 27 bases located throughout the state, 1,968 veteran-owned firms in Fairfax County alone, and the highest density of military vanity license plates in the country, servicemembers and their families are in good company and will find a solid support network.

Support services such as the Virginia Transition Assistance Program (VTAP) and Boots to Suits are here to help, and many employers located in the region are passionate about hiring veterans. Whether your goal is to find a job, reskill and switch career paths entirely, get a little help with your resume or find a supportive home for your family, Northern Virginia is the perfect place to plant roots and thrive.
