MOAA has once again been honored with the HIRE Vets Medallion Award from the Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS). This achievement marks our fourth year of recognition for our commitment to recruiting, employing, and retaining veterans.


Honorees were announced Nov. 8. MOAA is proud to receive a Platinum award, as it supports our ongoing mission to empower veterans and ensure their successful transition to meaningful civilian careers.

"We are honored to be recognized with the Platinum award alongside other outstanding organizations,” said MOAA President and CEO Lt. Gen. Brian T. Kelly, USAF (Ret). “Our daily mission includes supporting and advocating for veterans, making it even more important and meaningful for us to lead by example in our own practices."


The HIRE Vets Medallion Award program was established by the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) Act of 2017. Businesses and organizations are categorized by size; MOAA earned a Platinum award in the medium-size tier, made up of employers with 51 to 499 employees.


To earn Platinum, an awardee must have at least 10% of veterans among new hires in 2022, or retain at least 85% of the veterans hired in 2022 for at least 12 months. Also, at least 10% of the overall employee body must be comprised of veterans. 


More than 30% of MOAA’s staff is made up of veterans or military spouses, further emphasizing our commitment to the entire military community.


Other Platinum award honorees include Blue Star Families, Boeing, Booz Allen Hamilton, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and the Wounded Warrior Project. For the full list of 2023 awardees, click here.
