Feds Hire Vets - Vet to Vet

I enlisted in the military in 2003, and was deployed in 2005. I was discharged in 2008 due to service-connected disabilities. I was accepted into the Vocational Rehabilitation program in 2012 through the Veterans Affairs Administration and graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Business Management in March of 2016. I began working at the VA to be able to help other Veterans by processing claims and to give back to those who are in need of benefits that they have earned by serving their country. I have been able to use my military experience to assist with reading military documents, relating to other Veterans, and to understand the process that Veterans go through while applying and waiting for responses from the VA for their claims. I am able to empathize with Veterans, their families, and situations. I have promoted the VA to other Veterans and educate them about benefits that they are able to apply for. Giving back to those who have served is a high priority and true passion of mine. Working with other Veterans and helping those in need is a rewarding and satisfying position and I cannot think of a better way to support my family. Working for the VA is not just a career; it is a passion that stems to all avenues of my life. The VA's core values and mission align with my military background and personal ethics, I am proud to work at that VA.
