DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service has made U.S. Veterans Magazine’s Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Companies and Top Government and Law Enforcement Agencies lists, the fifth year in a row the magazine has recognized the Department of Defense retailer in both categories.
The distinction, which recognizes the Exchange’s efforts to seek Veteran applicants and support Veteran associates, comes just one week after the Exchange ranked 14th out of 100 on Military Times’ 2018 Best for Vets: Employers list. The Exchange also recently reaffirmed its commitment to hire 50,000 Veterans and military spouses worldwide by 2020.
“The Exchange is honored to receive these back-to-back honors in recognition of our efforts to hire and retain our nation’s Veterans,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “It takes a special person to sacrifice so much in service of others. We are privileged to have these selfless patriots on our team.”
U.S. Veterans Magazine publishes annual Best of the Best lists for Veteran-friendly companies; schools and franchises; supplier diversity programs; and government and law enforcement agencies. The lists are compiled from independent and market research, diversity conference participation, and survey responses.
The Exchange gives preference to honorably discharged Veterans; disabled Veterans; military retirees below the rank of major or its equivalent; and spouses, widows and mothers of deceased and disabled Veterans. Since 2010, the Exchange has hired more than 1,100 Wounded Warriors.
This past Veterans Day, the Exchange also extended a lifelong online shopping benefit to all honorably discharged Veterans. Eligibility to receive military-exclusive pricing and tax-free shopping at ShopMyExchange.com can be verified at ShopMyExchange.com/veterans.
