Active military duty has graduated beyond the traditional combat-only responsibilities to include the hands-on application of leading-edge technologies, logistics, communications, analysis and leadership – skills in high demand at ManTech,” said Carlos S. Echalar, vice president of human resources for ManTech International. Half of the company’s 9,700 employees are veterans or serve in the Guard or Reserve. "Veterans who possess these skills closely match our customer base and have a deeper understanding of our customers’ infrastructure, culture and customs."
California is home to nearly two million veterans, more than any other state. The high rates of homelessness and joblessness among our veterans is unconscionable:
Veteran unemployment is more than 15 percent—nearly 6 percent higher than the nationwide average.
There are more than 19,500 homeless veterans in California. One out of every 10 veterans without a roof over their head lives in Los Angeles.
