DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has named Veracity Research Company Investigations (VRC), a Denton, Texas-based company that makes hiring veterans a part of its business strategy, its Outstanding Midsize Employer of the Year. VRC representatives will receive the award Aug. 4 during the 98th DAV and Auxiliary National Convention in Orlando, Florida.

“It is my duty, honor and privilege to hire the future leaders of my company by employing those who have honorably served,” said VRC CEO Marcus Doyle. “Their tenacity, loyalty and always-can-do attitude sets the example for others to follow.”

VRC is a veteran-owned small business that regularly attends veteran career fairs and partners with several organizations to be able to recruit veterans from all 50 states. Due to the company’s efforts, 38% of its over 300 employees are veterans, and VRC has earned the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve’s Patriot Award (ESGR) eight times.

The company is also actively involved with veteran-related issues in its community. VRC was instrumental in the renovation and opening of a Denton County Veterans Center in Texas. The center will provide veterans with tax services, counseling and consulting during the process of obtaining other services and benefits.

“It is a part of VRC’s overall business plan to recruit and hire veterans because their ownership uniquely understands the talents veterans bring to the workforce,” said DAV National Commander Dennis Nixon      “I am thankful for not only their efforts in hiring veterans, but their willingness to work outside of the organization to improve the lives of veterans in my home state of Texas.”

“This organization knows how veterans can positively impact any business venture,” said DAV National Employment Director Jeff Hall. “I am proud to recognize their efforts on behalf of fellow veterans and especially the disabled veteran community.”
