Veterans' Priority of Service
You are a veteran if you are a former military veteran service member or a National Guard Member or Reservist who served on active military duty. Your character, training and skills are valued by businesses. Veterans and eligible spouses are identified at the point of entry to the American Job Centers so that they may take full advantage of Priority of Service (POS). POS means that veterans and eligible spouses, who meet the eligibility requirement, are given access to employment, training, and placement services at an earlier time or before persons who are not eligible for POS.
