The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Veterans Services (DVS) has awarded 1st Advantage FCU, Yorktown, Va., the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certification for its commitment to hiring military veterans.

Virginia Values Veterans (V3) is a groundbreaking program administered by DVS that works with companies as well as state and local governmental agencies across the Commonwealth to promote the recruitment, hiring and retention of military veterans in the Virginia workforce.

Founded as Fort Eustis Federal Credit Union in 1951, 1st Advantage has a legacy of supporting the military community through partnerships, volunteerism and donations. 1st Advantage also recognizes the importance and value veterans bring to the workforce and the local community.

Paul W. Muse, president/CEO of 1st Advantage, said “We are honored to be a part of the Virginia Values Veterans program. The military community runs deep in our history and the credit union would not be where it is today without their support and involvement.”
