The Fourth of July is a special time of year where we celebrate the heroic efforts of our Veterans and the role they’ve continued to play in making America a free country. On July 4, 1776, the United States claimed its independence from England, which led to the establishment of the United States. Each year on July 4th, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event — in large part because of Veterans. Our Veterans’ patriotism, and willingness to put their life on the line ensures Americans can live a free and full life. When the sky lights up with fireworks this Fourth, take a moment to reflect on the men and women who continue to serve this country.

VA works hard to continuously celebrate our Veterans, and you can do the same by joining our team. We’re always looking for new talent dedicated to serving those who serve us. Head to VA Careers to view open positions and explore your opportunities. But most importantly we would like to wish you all a happy Independence Day!
