benefits available to veterans as employees of the federal government.

federal agencies can ensure issues of veteran
retention and development in the workforce are appropriately addressed.

have acquired during their military service are effectively understood and
documented in employment forms so that the Internal Revenue Service and other
federal agencies can take full advantage of
veteran capabilities in the workplace.
- Serve as an information-sharing vehicle with respect to issues unique to
veterans such as making effective transitions from military to civilian life,
adjusting to federal government leadership and management styles, etc.
- Provide an information network pertaining to how disabled veterans can
quickly adapt to employer needs in the workplace by providing historical and
organizational knowledge to current disabled federal government veterans who are in need of
such transitional adjustment services.

- Educate and enhance perceptions of managers and hiring authorities to the
benefits of hiring veterans.
Military Outreach for Service was originally founded in 2008 as Military Outreach for Service - Internal Revenue Service (MOS-IRS) by four IRS employees completing their executive training. The organization received its nonprofit status under 501(c)(3) in November 2009 as MOS-IRS. In 2010, the National Board of MOS-IRS voted to expand membership all of the Department of Treasury
and other federal agencies and the organization's name was subsequently changed to Military Outreach for Service (MOS).
MOS adopted a fiscal year of October 1 - September 30 to coincide with the federal fiscal cycle.
