Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

Border Patrol Opens up Jobs for Veterans and the Army Reserve

The U.S. border Patrol has a big job, and it’s getting more dangerous by the day. It’s good to see that they are turning to true professionals to continue the efforts to protect our border.

The story from Newsmax:

The Army Reserve and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) formally agreed this week to work collaboratively to provide job opportunities for America’s soldiers and veterans to serve with the CBP—a growing agency that finds military men and women a good fit.

With an estimated 11,000 jobs opening in CBP, the partnership will aim to help Army Reserve soldiers and veterans find jobs in today’s economy, noted a press release from the Army Reserve.

The alliance, launched under the Army Reserve Employer Partnership Initiative, will help strengthen the community, support Army Reserve soldiers and their families, and contribute to a strong economy, noted the release.

CBP is the first federal agency to join the Army Reserve’s Employer Partnership.

“This formal alliance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection presents a remarkable opportunity for some 10,200 trained and skilled Army Reserve Soldiers to potentially achieve their career goals with this federal agency,” said Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz, chief, Army Reserve. “This formal partnership also sets the standard among other federal agencies and the Army Reserve.”

“CBP maintains a deep commitment to hiring and supporting the brave men and women who protect and defend America,” said Jayson P. Ahern, Acting Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “These Citizen-Soldiers have a well-earned reputation as exemplary employees with proven leadership, teamwork, discipline and grace under pressure that are immeasurably valuable to any organization.”
