HII has a commitment to the men and women of the Armed Forces—and their families—that extends well beyond the ships we build and maintain for the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. We employ more than 6,300 military veterans—about 17 percent of our workforce—as well as current members of the Reserves and National Guard, and we are also committed to filling more than 20 percent of new jobs with veterans. We are also proud of our ongoing corporate partnership with the USO.

HII is certified by Virginia Values Veterans, a program that helps employers implement nationally recognized best practices in recruiting, hiring and retaining highly skilled and dependable veterans.
