“Recruiting wounded warriors is not just something we do for statistics or to get good PR. We recruit you because of who you are - men and women who have demonstrated a desire to serve our country who also bring invaluable expertise into NAVSEA.... In short - you're the perfect package. That is why we work so hard to get you onboard at NAVSEA.”
̴ Vice Adm. William Hilarides, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command
“Wounded Warriors are by definition, tenacious and resilient. They are leaders and doers."
̴ Hon. Juan Garcia, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs
“We, as a nation, have no higher obligation than to care for our Wounded Warriors who have sacrificed so much to serve our nation."
̴ Hon. Robert Work, Under Secretary of the Navy
The skills and experiences of our warriors or veterans represents a rich resource
of talent that can support NAVSEA's mission of developing, delivering and maintaining
ships and systems on time, on cost for the U.S. Navy.
Naval Sea Systems Command's Wounded Warrior Program seeks to match service-
disabled veterans with employment opportunities in NAVSEA's industrial, scientific,
contracting and administrative fields. NAVSEA has approximately 60,000 positions
at 38 different field activities across the country and overseas. The command also
collaborates with the Army Material Command to help wounded warriors find meaningful
opportunities at Army locations within the United States.
Internships offer the training and education for wounded warriors to excel in entry-level placements and advance in their
chosen field. Consult the Wounded Warrior Program office for the latest opportunities.
Wounded Warrior Program coordinators offer post 9-11 GI bill benefits guidance to help navigate educational opportunities
offered through NAVSEA, the Veteran's Administration, and the Department of Labor.
Mentor, Assist, Train to Excel and Support
NAVSEA's commitment to wounded warriors continues beyond employment placement. Hand-selected mentors work with
wounded warriors, providing continued support as they transition to the civilian workforce. The command's commitment
to veterans and its leadership from the front approach sets the precedent for the Navy's other systems commands.
