Operation JumpStart is a program of the Service Member Support (SMS) Foundation. The purpose of the event is to show support for our wounded warriors from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom as they transition to civilian careers.

Please join the organizing sponsors, 1105 Media and the Information Technology Alliance for Public Sector (ITAPS) on Monday, February 12, 2018, from 5:30 – 8:30PM at the Army-Navy Club, 1700 Army-Navy Drive in Arlington, Virginia, as we hold our fourteenth annual “Operation Jump Start” event to help the service men and women of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom transition to civilian careers. The event is also supported by ACT-IAC, AFCEA-Bethesda, AFFIRM, FedScoop and GITEC and open to all who want to give.

The event gives wounded warriors an opportunity to network with members of the IT community who provide employment and internship opportunities with the largest to the smallest firms in IT. The wounded warriors come away with job opportunities and contacts.

The price of admission is a donation to support the warriors as they “Jump Start” their civilian careers. Many people bring clothes appropriate of job interviews as well as gift cards for stores and restaurants near Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Medical Center.
