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 6,400 military veterans — about 15% of our workforce — as well as current members of the Reserves and National Guard, and we are also committed to filling more than 20% of new jobs with veterans. We are also proud to support a variety of USO events.
