VVA Endorses VetJobs, Leading Internet
Job Board for Veterans


(Washington, D.C.) – “We at Vietnam Veterans of America are pleased to endorse VetJobs, the nation’s largest military-related job board on the Internet,” said John Rowan, VVA National President.  “With the unemployment rate of newly discharged military veterans hovering around 15 percent–three times the national unemployment rate–VetJobs is a key resource for them and for Vietnam-era veterans too young to retire.   

“We have looked at many sites that purport to provide jobs for veterans and their family members,” Rowan said.  “Our endorsement is meant to let our members know that VVA recognizes the success that VetJobs has had in finding quality jobs for thousands of veterans and their family members.  We encourage them to use the VetJobs site: www.VetJobs.com.”  

“We are very pleased to have been selected for this distinctive endorsement by Vietnam Veterans of America,” said VetJobs President Ted Daywalt. “This is an important endorsement since most of the 12.6 million veterans currently in the work force are from the Vietnam era. There are over 40,000 job boards and career portals on the Internet. Knowing which site offers the best services and support for our veterans and their family members can spell the difference between success and failure in the job search.” 

Seven-year-old VetJobs is partially owned by Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and is recognized as the leading military-related Internet job board assisting U.S. military veterans worldwide as well as transitioning military personnel and their family members. Thousands of veterans and their family members have found jobs with more than 7,000 employers who use VetJobs as a primary recruiting site. There is no charge for veterans to use VetJobs. 


Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) is the nation's only congressionally chartered veterans service organization dedicated to the needs of Vietnam-era veterans and their families.  VVA's founding principle is “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”
