DynCorp Makes Magazine’s Top 5 Veteran Business List; Steve Gaffney Comments

Dyncorp_logoDynCorp International has been selected as one of Vetrepreneur’s five best companies for veteran-owned businesses to work with in the U.S. for the seventh consecutive year.

The National Veteran-Owned Business Association compiled the list and the magazine will feature the list in the cover story of its April issue, DynCorp said Thursday.

NaVOBA represents nearly 3 million veteran-owned businesses.

“The company was founded by veterans more than 60 years ago and, today, more than 65 percent of our personnel have served in the military,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp chairman and CEO.

“That shared sense of service, values and discipline – in both our veteran personnel and veteran-owned suppliers – helps us perform to a higher level when supporting national security and foreign policy objectives around the world,” he added.
