Welcome to the 2015 Department of the Navy Wounded Warrior & Veteran Hiring and
Support Conference official website!

 Plan to join us on May 19-20, 2015, at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade in San Antonio, Texas

 Vice Admiral David Dunaway, Commander Naval Air Systems Command; Vice Admiral William Hilarides, Commander Naval Sea Systems Command; Rear Admiral David Lewis, Commander Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command; and I invite you to attend the Department of the Navy’s Annual Wounded Warrior Hiring and Veteran Support Conference on May 19-20, 2015, at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade in San Antonio, Texas.

 For many wounded, ill and injured service members and disabled veterans, physical and mental healing is only the beginning of the long journey to full recovery. In addition to facing a set of new challenges and adjusting to a “new normal,” many transitioning service members and veterans also struggle to find meaningful employment in the civilian sector. The Department of the Navy (DON) is committed to hiring wounded warriors and supporting them in the workplace.

 This year, our theme is “Hiring Our Nation’s Heroes – Meet the Challenge, Hire a Veteran!” The conference will bring together government, military, industry leaders, and their human resource professionals, who are committed to hiring and supporting wounded warriors. This forum will promote career development and long-term employment, emphasizing the importance of education and training. Our career fair and workshops will be attended by wounded warriors and veterans.

 To ensure we reach out to veterans across the United States, this year’s conference will be hosted in San Antonio. Texas is home to one of the largest wounded warrior and veteran populations in the country and hosts an abundance of industries and educational institutions that offer a strong infrastructure. San Antonio is easily accessible to multiple warrior transition units and veteran-focused organizations.

 Explore our website for more information. 

  We look forward to seeing you at the conference!

NOTICE

The Department of the Navy's 4th Annual Wounded Warrior Hiring and Support Conference, scheduled for October 16-17, 2013, in Raleigh, N.C., has been postponed because of the current fiscal environment and the absence of either a fiscal year 2014 appropriation or a continuing resolution for the Department of Defense.

The conference is expected to be rescheduled in February/March 2014, and the final dates will be communicated as soon as they have been finalized. Thank you for your flexibility and support as we work through the current budget challenges and continue to do all you can for our nation's heroes.
