Mission Statement

The Military Outreach for Support (MOS), is an employee organization that provides support to our veterans of the Uniformed Services of the United States (e.g. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, etc.) who have sacrificed so much through their efforts to defend our nation and to further the cause of peace and freedom around the world.

In providing support to military veterans and their family members, the MOS will simultaneously further the interests of the Department of Treasury and other military veteran employees as the unique features of the veteran community are brought together to enrich work life while on the job. MOS membership is open to all federal government employees and retirees.

No person shall be excluded from membership, segregated or discriminated against within the organization on the grounds of sex, race, color, religion, marital status, national origin, age, political affiliation, or physical/mental disability.

MOS will ...

  • Do what is right in Veteran’s eyes and maintain a consistent veteran focus on all that we do.
  • Build on the value all veterans bring to the plate and explore opportunities at all levels to empower veterans; we will seek challenges that build on veterans’ uniqueness.
  • Be an active organization with room for anyone willing to lend a hand.
  • Recognize any member for their contributions.
  • Do everything possible to encourage our Senior Executives to provide enhanced support and direct mentoring.

The Purpose of MOS

The purpose of MOS is to:

  • Provide a forum whereby the unique needs of veterans employed by the federal government, the Internal Revenue Service in particular, can be identified, addressed, and communicated.
  • Provide education and information to employees and managers regarding benefits available to veterans as employees of the federal government.
  • Serve as a resource for federal agencies,  the Internal Revenue Service in particular, recruitment initiatives by identifying sources for veteran recruitment, partnering with recruiters from federal agencies to increase the potential candidate pool and providing information about the federal hiring, application, and interview processes as needed.
  • Be a champion for veterans so that the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies can ensure issues of veteran retention and development in the workforce are appropriately addressed.
  • Serve as a mechanism to ensure that the unique skills and abilities veterans 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.
  • Assist federal government employees who are family members of veterans on issues unique or challenging to their situation.
  • Educate and enhance perceptions of managers and hiring authorities to the benefits of hiring veterans.

Historical Notes

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.
