Veterans appreciate the implications of the work we do and are committed to supporting our nation.

We are very proud to support our veterans,” said Harry Boston, president of Boston Government Services, LLC.
BGS joins 848 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service.
