Fort Worth prides itself on being a supporter of both active military and veterans. This includes when it comes to finding a job. As more veterans enter the workforce, specialized programs, career fairs, and educational training opportunities await in Fort Worth.
According to the U.S. Census, 42,013 veterans call Fort Worth home, and for good reason. Southern Business & Development ranked the city as one of the best places in Texas for job-seeking veterans. Fort Worth is ripe with employment opportunities for our former-active military men and women in a variety of industries, from engineering to technology. Global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin unlocks a host of exciting careers, by working to create cutting edge technology for the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. federal government agencies. Fort Worth’s Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, the first of its kind in the country, brings together Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Army, and Texas Air National Guard units to support and train all branches of the armed services. Veterans can also enjoy retiring near base while enjoying Fort Worth’s many amenities to the east in downtown.
