On June 7th we proudly accepted the 2018 American Legion NJ Employer of the Year award at the Wildwood, NJ Convention Center. We were recognized for our profound commitment to employing military veterans and their family members. In addition to our strong partnership with the American Legion, we have partnerships with other military veteran organizations including the GI Go Fund.

We proudly employ over 250 dedicated and passionate military veterans throughout the country and salute all of our heroes including Derek Burton (pictured above). Derek served as a machine gunner in the United States Marine Corps and today he serves as one of our Region Coordinators and Buddy Program Coordinators. Through our program “Heroes Hired Here”, military veterans who accept a regular (non-seasonal) full-time position can take advantage of several benefits including payment of CDL and endorsement fees, Reservist training compensation and Veteran Buddy Program.

Thank you to the American Legion for this prestigious award!
