Virginia Values Its Veterans

Each year, thousands of skilled workers exit the U.S. military in Virginia, providing a steady pipeline of dedicated, specialized talent to the tech industry.

  • Virginia is home to over 185,000 veterans under the age of 45, the 4th-largest population in the country.
  • Thanks to its close proximity to Washington, D.C., and 30 + other military installations from Quantico to Norfolk, Virginia is one of the highest density states for both military veterans and talent with security clearances.
  • Over 42,000 individuals in Virginia report having some type of security clearance on their professional profile, the highest number of any state in the country. (Emsi)
