Victory Media, the publisher of GI Jobs and Military Spouse, recognized USAA as the nation’s top military friendly employer.

It is the second consecutive year for the San Antonio-based finance and insurance institution to receive the title. It has been in the top 10 since the recognition was created in 2003.

USAA has two locations in Killeen and is building a third location in the Five Hills Shopping Center in Copperas Cove.

“USAA is honored to be selected for this prestigious award for the second year in a row,” said retired Col. John DiPiero, USAA veteran engagement manager. “We know we are among other great companies with superb veteran and spouse programs and we are proud to be among them. USAA’s employees have earned this honor on behalf of our veterans and their families — a big HOO-AH to the entire USAA team.”

USAA employees nearly 6,000 veterans and military spouses, with about 250 who serve in the National Guard and Reserves, said Mike Kelly, USAA executive director of enterprise affairs. More than 30 are on military leave from the company serving the nation.

“USAA is proud of its commitment to helping veterans and military spouses as they transition from military service,” DiPiero said. “Along with many other great organizations, we do everything we can to ensure our heroes find meaningful employment, not only at USAA, but anywhere they choose.”
