Abraham Lincoln created the Department of Veterans Affairs with the most noble of missions: To care for him who shall borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan. Every day, more soldiers leave the battlefield headed for home – men and women who sacrificed their bodies and, in some cases, their minds defending the dignity, honor and safety of those at home.
When you work at VA you will have a comfortable salary, comprehensive benefits and a great work/life balance.
