Welcome to the Department of the Navy's (DoN) official Wounded
Warrior Hiring and Support Conference website!
Plan to join us on May 28 and 29 in Raleigh, N.C.
Vice Admiral David Dunaway, Commander Naval Air Systems Command;
Vice Admiral William Hilarides, Commander Naval Sea Systems Command; Rear
Admiral Patrick H. Brady, Commander Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command; and
I invite you to attend DoN’s 4th Annual Wounded Warrior Hiring and Support
Conference on May 28-29, 2014, at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown in Raleigh,
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 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 veterans and their spouses.
To ensure we reach out to veterans across the United States, this
year’s conference will be hosted in Raleigh. North Carolina 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. Raleigh/ Durham is easily accessible to multiple warrior
transition units and veteran-focused organizations.
