VG Systems strives to give back to our community. Not only do we take advantage of a variety of knowledge sharing methods to host free seminars, found and participate in community programs, and participate in Industry Day and Hackathons, but we also teach current industry professionals about upgrades, new practices, and to better work with the DoD.

MilSpouse Program: VG Systems not only works in the Government sector, but we believe in the Mission of our nation’s military, their warfighters, and their families. That is why we started the MilSpouse Program in September 2018 to help war-fronters’ spouses by offering remote telework, their spouses can work from home, in their timeframe. This gives military spouses the opportunity not only to support their household but to also develop skills and experience to further their personal careers
