The Department recognizes the courage and sacrifice of American veterans, particularly those who are injured in the line of duty. To honor their service, the Department participates in programs to help injured soldiers and disabled veterans gain skills and transition to civilian work.
Operation Warfighter Initiative
Operation Warfighter helps service members who are recovering from injury to learn valuable skills and build their resumes.
Wounded Warrior Program
The Department of Homeland Security Wounded Warrior Program recruits and hires severely wounded veterans. While the program does not guarantee a job, the Department provides veterans the opportunity to apply for available positions without navigating the standard competitive process.
