The U.S. Department of Labor recognized Veterans Guardian with a HIREVets Gold Medallion Award, the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development.

Headquartered in Pinehurst, Veterans Guardian is a VA Claim Consulting Firm that serves clients around the world.

Earlier this year, the company won the AMVETS Employer of the Year award. And they are one one of 15 North Carolina employers that received the HIREVets Medallion.

The award was established as part of the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans HIREVets Act, signed into law on May 5, 2017, and is designed to recognize employers who display a commitment to hiring our nation’s heroes.

“When we founded Veterans Guardian, we knew that hiring Veterans would be part of our organizational ethos,” said founder and CEO Scott Greenblatt, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel. “More companies would benefit by prioritizing the hiring of veterans. These individuals bring a wealth of knowledge and technical skills, an ability to lead, and offer a true spirit of teamwork and collaboration.”

“We have made a firm commitment to not only hire more veterans and veteran spouses, but to provide support and resources to our veteran employees and their families to enable them to thrive professionally and personally,” he added. “We're honored to receive the Gold Medallion through HIREVets and look forward to continuing to serve veterans.”

In addition to their hiring practices, Veterans Guardian is dedicated to honoring military veterans and their families through a variety of community outreach initiatives and sustained financial support of veteran and community charities, scholarship funds and organizations.
