VetJobs is endorsed by more veteran service organizations than any other military related job board. VetJobs will only mention an organization if there exist a formal written endorsement, MOA or MOU between the organizations. The following organizations have agreements with VetJobs:
Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)
The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, with its Auxiliaries, includes 2.3 million members in approximately 8,400 Posts worldwide.
Its mission is to “honor the dead by helping the living” through veterans’ service, community service, national security and a strong national defense.
The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans’ pension for them and they were left to care for themselves.
In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000.
Since then, the VFW’s voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. The VFW also has fought for improving VA medical centers services for women veterans.
The VFW agreed to sponsor and bought 10% of VetJobs on January 21, 2000.

Vietnam Veterans of America
Founded in 1978, Vietnam Veterans of America is the only national Vietnam veterans organization congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families. VVA is organized as a not-for-profit corporation and is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
The VVA’s founding principle is: “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.” The VVS’s goals are to promote and support the full range of issues important to Vietnam veterans, to create a new identity for this generation of veterans, and to change public perception of Vietnam veterans. The VVA has over 50,000 individual members organized in 46 state councils and 630 local chapters. Vietnam Veterans of America relies totally on private contributions for its revenue. VVA does not receive any funding from federal, state, or local governments.
VVA formally endorsed VetJobs on March 9, 2006.

Association of the United States Navy
Between World War I and World War II, the Naval Reserve Officers Association (NROA) successfully fought for a strong Reserve Force to augment the Regular Navy. At the end of World War II, Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal sponsored the Reserve Officers of the Naval Service (RONS), which was made up of Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Reserve officers. In 1946, RONS combined with the Naval Reserve Officers Association to form RONS-NROA.
In 1948, RONS-NROA merged into the older all-services Reserve Officers Association (ROA), in keeping with the spirit of unification of the Armed Forces. However, it became apparent that an organization was needed that would speak solely for the Navy, the Naval Reserve, and Naval Reserve officers. In 1954 with encouragement and support from many senior regular Navy officers, forty-three Naval Reserve officers founded the Naval Reserve Association. The subsequent dynamic growth of the NRA indicates that an exceptionally large number of Naval Reserve officers endorse and support the views of its Founders. Further evidence of this endorsements a membership renewal rate of more than 85 percent. The Naval Reserve Association was incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1954 as a veteran organization. In 2009 the name was changed to the Association of the United States Navy.
AUSN formally endorsed VetJobs on April 25, 2007.

With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America’s military history. Most importantly, they provide comfort and assistance to all Veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless and those requiring employment assistance.

National Guard Association of the United States
The National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS) was created in 1878 to provide unified National Guard representation in Washington.

That mission continues today.
NGAUS formally endorsed VetJobs in March, 2012.

The Reserve Officers Association
For more than 90 years the Reserve Officers Association has been the only organization dedicated to supporting Reservists and their critical role in national defense. Reserve service carries unique burdens and for more than nine decades, the Reserve Officers Association has been the nation’s leading advocate for lifelong support in recognition of these unprecedented contributions to the cause of freedom.
Since 1922, ROA has championed the cause of Reservists at home and on the battlefield. The evolution of that mission has helped protect the rights and benefits of individual Reservists while preserving a strong and capable Reserve force as a critical component to our national security.
Whenever and wherever they have been called to the colors, America’s Reserve forces have been ready, resilient, and reliable. Through evolving roles and missions, the face of Reserve service may have changed, but the call to duty has remained the same. Reservists of every background and branch have shared the sacrifice of service to their country; from duty at home, to Europe to Vietnam, the Pacific to Southwest and South central Asia. Bravery in the face of burden, honor despite hardship; these are the tenets that have defined Reserve service for nearly a century.
Like the service members they represent, ROA has evolved. Our nation’s Reserve Components have emerged as one of the most unique, adaptable and operational forces in the world. With reverence to the unprecedented sacrifices of this generation of Reservists, today ROA’s mission is simple: support these brave men and women through a commitment to a fundamental ethos of Reserve Strength and Reserve Life.
ROA formally endorsed VetJobs on December 14, 2015.
