According to the U.S. Census, there were 16.2 million military veterans in the U.S. in 2022, representing 6.2% of the total civilian population aged 18 and over. This Veterans Day, WashingtonExec is highlighting the ways in which the GovCon industry is recognizing and supporting the veteran community, around the holiday and year-round.
