Currently, veterans make up a significant portion of two of our Mission Critical Occupations – Border Patrol Agent (BPA) and Customs and Border Protection Officer (CBPO) – and 23% of our entire workforce.

We are proud to provide opportunities to those who wish to serve their country a second time.

Let Us help you…

We want to help you understand and use veterans' preference and other hiring flexibilities that are available to you. Below you will find links to general information about veterans’ employment with the Federal Government, as well as three appointing authorities: the 30% or more disabled veteran appointing authority; the Veterans Recruitment Appointment (VRA) appointing authority, and the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (VEOA).
