MCLEAN, Va. (April 29, 2014) – DynCorp International (DI) today announced that the DI family of companies has hired nearly 10,000 veterans since it began participating in the White House Joining Forces initiative. Joining Forces celebrates its third anniversary in 2014, an initiative launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to help connect U.S. servicemen and women, veterans and military spouses with the resources they need to find jobs at home.
In 2013, the DI family of companies hired more than 2,000 veterans and has hired more than 9,725 veterans since it has been involved with the Joining Forces campaign.
“Our veteran workforce strengthens our capability to successfully serve our customers on programs around the world,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and chief executive officer of DynCorp International. “Their experience and dedication are true assets and we have set a goal to hire an additional 1,000 veterans in 2014.”
Even before participating in the Joining Forces program in 2011, DI has had a longstanding commitment to hiring veterans. DI partners with U.S. Military Transition Offices, supports the Service Academy Career Conferences (SACCs) and participates in U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Hiring our Heroes” employment events.
In 2014 alone, DI has already been recognized on Victory Media’s Top Military-Friendly Employers list, Military Times’s 2014 list of “Best for Vets” employers and Vetrepreneur Magazine’s best defense companies for veteran-owned businesses.
