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 7,100 military veterans–about 18 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 to support a variety of USO events.
