A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions.
