Wood Dale, Illinois — AAR (NYSE: AIR), a leading independent provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, has been named to the “Best of the Best 2021 – Top Veteran-Friendly Companies” list by U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM).

USVM polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for this year’s Best of the Best evaluations. The award recognizes the top U.S. companies actively recruiting and providing a rewarding work culture for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans and military spouses.
“AAR is excited to be recognized again as a Top Veteran-Friendly Company,” said John Cooper, AAR SVP of Global Government & Defense. “Our veterans, who make over 20% of AAR’s U.S.-based workforce, are such an important part of our success because they know our customers, understand the mission and generate winning solutions. AAR is so much stronger because of our Veteran-employees, and we are proud to be called veteran-friendly.”
“We strive to encourage other companies to follow the lead and ultimately create a more diverse workforce,” says Mona Lisa Faris, USVM President & Publisher.
