Today we commemorate Veterans Day – a day to reflect with extraordinary gratitude on the service and sacrifices of those who have worn America's uniform. PSC is proud to highlight below actions by our member companies to support our veterans. View more ways PSC supports our Veteran Heroes by visiting the Veterans Affairs Task Force page. 


ASI Government, Inc. (ASI) has been recognized by Diversity Military World as one of America’s companies most friendly to military veterans, minorities, and women. ASI earned a spot in the top three among the 100 awardees for its outstanding outreach to veterans, disabled veterans, minorities, and women. We were evaluated on our workforce composition, outreach to and key milestones for veterans, disabled veterans, minorities, and women.

ASI actively hires veterans and assists them as they transition out of the military. In the past 45 days, ASI hired three new employees who are transitioning out of Army Transition Assistance Program (TAP) at Ft Meade. Over 35% of our employees are veterans, and we have several ongoing outreach initiatives to ensure we continue to help veterans. ASI supports the Wounded Warriors Project–Warriors to Work, Luke’s Wings, Operation Gratitude, and other TAP offices.


Abt Associates is dedicated to recruiting and developing the talent of servicemen and women who have made sacrifices to serve our country and to serving veterans through our work.  We accomplish our veteran hiring goals by identifying popular positions that fit a veteran skill set, make sure the positions are posted to more than a dozen military job boards and veteran websites and attend numerous events at a local and national level. Today we employ veterans from all five military branches in nearly all of our divisions and departments. 

Abt is committed to developing the military talent that we currently have on staff, placing veterans into positions of growth that utilize their proven experience and leadership.  Each Veteran’s Day, we honor our current military population, and their families, with a company-wide breakfast that makes a special note of those who have served.  If you are a veteran or member of a military family, and would like more information on how to transition from military service to a successful civilian career at Abt Associates, please email  and visit us at this link

In addition to military outreach and honoring those who served, Abt understands the challenges facing military service members and their families – from deployment to reintegrating into the community. We have partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense on more than 40 high-profile, large-scale studies with a primary focus on veterans over the past five years, including:

Studying the Impact of Deployment on Families
Abt and the Millennium Cohort Study team at the Naval Health Research Center, and academic partners from the Center for Child and Family Health and New York University, are conducting a large-scale survey to understand the consequences of deployment, especially to Iraq and Afghanistan, on military families.

Long-Term Health Outcomes of Vietnam Veterans (National Vietnam Veterans Longitudinal Study – NVVLS)
Abt and clinicians from New York University’s Department of Psychiatry designed, implemented, and reported on a reassessment of a nationally representative cohort of Vietnam veterans first evaluated in the 1987 National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study.

Supporting the Effort to End Veteran Homelessness
Abt provides technical assistance and training for approximately 380 grantees of the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, directly contributing to the program’s success in ending and preventing homelessness for veterans and their families.

These and other projects have yielded important information to inform federal health care policies and program development.  For more information visit


Since its founding in 1989, CALIBRE Systems, Inc. (CALIBRE), has maintained a strong and continuous commitment to our military and veteran clients. Today, over 80% of our work directly supports the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs, and 44% of our employees are veterans. As a result, CALIBRE has chosen to focus the company’s social responsibility efforts on veteran and military charitable programs.

Over the past three years, CALIBRE has partnered with Homes for Our Troops, sponsoring wounded warriors at CALIBRE golf tournaments and donating $190,000 to help build fully accessible, mortgage-free homes for our Nation’s severely wounded Service Members who were injured in battle post-September 11, 2001. CALIBRE’s annual support to this cause includes speaking at groundbreaking and key ceremonies where the recipients are honored by the local community and media.

CALIBRE has been awarded the 2016 Outstanding Veteran and Military Advocate Award at the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce (NVCC) Annual Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards Luncheon held on June 21, 2016. “This honor recognizes CALIBRE’s corporate culture and our company’s long-term commitment to support veterans and active, guard, and reserve military personnel and their families,” said CALIBRE President & CEO, Joe Martore. “By engaging personally and corporately, CALIBRE is able to make a positive impact and provide improved support to our veteran and military clients and charitable support organizations focused on these communities.” CALIBRE has also been recognized by the Department of Defense as a 5-Star Company for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, National Guard Educational Foundation as a Legion de Lafayette member, and by the National Veteran Small Business Coalition as a Champion of Veteran Enterprise. CALIBRE recognizes freedom is not free and will continue to support our Service Members, the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Deloitte remains committed to supporting transitioning veterans, military service members, and their families as part of our focus on helping grow leaders and strengthen America’s workforce. We do this by focusing our resources and support in the areas of employment and physical health & recovery.  

Dedicated Veteran Hiring Initiative
Deloitte strives to be the professional services organization where the brightest and most talented leaders want to be. The backgrounds and experiences of our people are as diverse as our business offerings, and we rely on the rich, varied experiences of our people to help shape the quality of service to our clients. Transitioning armed forces members and veterans bring invaluable skills, knowledge, experience, and insights that further enrich the diversity of our teams. Deloitte’s Armed Forces Business Resource Group (AFBRG) now has nearly 20 chapters across the US. This growing network of 1,000+ veterans, Reservists, National Guard members, and supporters continues to provide excellent opportunities for networking, mentoring and onboarding via the Veteran Practitioner Program (VPP), and skills based volunteerism with nonprofit organizations in communities across the U.S.

National and Local Impact

Deloitte continues to address veteran transition challenges through pro bono work, delivering more than $3.5 million in pro bono support to military and veterans-related nonprofits across 24 projects in fiscal year 2016 alone while applying client service offerings from Tax, Advisory, and Consulting to 14 military and veteran nonprofit organizations that provide veterans’ services, help veterans start businesses, and support post-military career transitions; over 39k volunteering and pro bono hours contributed to veteran-serving nonprofits across nearly 40 markets in the US; sponsorships of nonprofit organizations such as the USO, Hire Heroes USA, The George W. Bush Institute, Bunker Labs, The Call of Duty Endowment, American Corporate Partners, Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, and USC’s Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families;  programs and events such as the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Winter Sports Clinic and the Warrior Games; workplace giving opportunities leading to over $250K in personal donations to military and veteran-serving nonprofits through the annual Employee Giving Campaign in FY16; corporate donations; and client work and collaboration – including an upcoming convening with clients and leading veteran-serving nonprofit organizations to share best practices on veteran hiring and retention.

Career Opportunity Redefinition & Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program
As part of the White House’s Joining Forces Initiative, Deloitte committed in 2013 to doubling our veteran hiring  ̶  when challenged by the White House to do more, we addressed the employment and retention challenges by creating the Career Opportunity Redefinition and Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program to help transitioning military service members translate their leadership abilities into a business context.  The program helps the veterans shift their mind-set to focus on their individual strengths and interests, and encourages them to pursue careers that are a good fit for their attributes.

At ICF, we support veterans in three ways—career opportunities, philanthropy and direct support, and our work. 

First and foremost, we consider it our duty and in our own best interest to serve veterans directly through job opportunities. To that end, we have set annual hiring targets. We continually strive to improve our ability to match veteran candidates with career opportunities. We actively attend and participate in events, webinars, and training programs that target veterans throughout the year. We automatically post open positions to 32 military sites via DirectEmployers. We partner with the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI) to "proactively get our jobs in front of the veteran candidate" and implement the best attraction and retention practices. We hosted three NVTC Recruiting Days in 2015, with about 60 participants each. Disabled American Veterans (DAV) recognized ICF in 2013 as “Outstanding Large Employer of the Year” for our dedication to veterans for philanthropic and recruitment activities including offering services, like driving veterans to medical appointments, offering professional mentoring to prepare veterans for a career change, and mentored female veterans and military spouses who seek employment and professional development, seeking disabled veteran-owned businesses as contractors, subcontractors, vendors and suppliers. ICF employees demonstrated our commitment to veterans by selecting and supporting DAV as an ICF philanthropy partner for corporate giving for 3 years in a row. Additionally, we’ve teamed with more than 100 veteran-owned small businesses since 2010 and forge mentor-protégé relationships with veteran-owned small businesses.

For over 30 years, ICF has worked on issues of great importance to our nation’s veterans and their families: housing access, employment readiness, smoking cessation, and mentoring, to name a few. We work with the Department of Defense and military clients to conduct studies on issues and programs that support active and reserve military personnel, military families, and veterans. Some examples of our work supporting veterans including helping the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) develop eBenefits, a fully integrated Web and mobile-friendly self-service portal, and an essential tool for veterans and their families to safely and securely access critical benefits information; helping the Defense Health Agency and RAND Corporation survey more than 100,000 active-duty military personnel to measure health-related behaviors and assess the readiness and fitness of the force; and work with the Henry M. Jackson Foundation and Penn State to develop understanding of what improves the long-term well-being of transitioning veterans.

The NCSA-HC curriculum is designed to introduce learners to the foundational technologies in storage and data management, both on the premises and in a hybrid cloud environment. For veterans and military personnel, NetApp certification provides industry-recognized validation of their skills and knowledge in this rapidly emerging area, and it can help differentiate them in a job search.

Veterans bring a global outlook and an understanding of the clients we serve. As a proud supporter of our nation’s veterans, Salient CRGT has a rich history of supporting veterans groups and hiring veterans. Salient CRGT is a certified Virginia Values Veterans employer and a recognized supporter of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
