COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Veterans Magazine
ranked Hyundai Motor America among the nation's top veteran-friendly
companies. The results were announced via their 2013 Best of the Best Lists,
which evaluates employment, business and supplier opportunities for returning
U.S. veterans. Hyundai Motor America was the only automotive manufacturer to
receive this honor.


In addition to being a company that provides employment opportunity for
veterans, Hyundai also offers the best automotive rebate program in the
industry. Hyundai's Military Rebate Program provides anyone who has served a
single day in any branch of the U.S. Military, including Reserve and National
Guard forces, with a $500 rebate towards the purchase or lease of a new
Hyundai vehicle. The program similarly applies to spouses of military
personnel. Last year, Hyundai Motor America paid more than $24 million in
rebates to U.S. military and family members, making Hyundai one of the most
veteran-friendly car companies in America. This year, U.S. military personnel
and veterans account for a remarkable 1 in 10 Hyundai vehicle sales.

"The goal of our annual evaluation is not only to bring information and
guidance to our readers, but also to encourage active outreach and diversity
policies among corporations and government agencies," said Mona Lisa Faris,
president and publisher, U.S. Veterans Magazine. "Hyundai Motor America offers
veterans the opportunity to quickly and easily transition into civilian life
by providing engaging and valuable career opportunities."

The 2013 Best of the Best Lists were compiled from a multitude of sources
including market research, independent research, diversity conference
participation and survey responses. More than 250 companies and institutions
participated in this year's evaluation, resulting in lists of the nation's top
veteran-friendly companies, top supplier diversity programs, top Veteran
Business Owners (VBOs) and Disabled Veteran Business Owners (DVBOs), top
government and law enforcement agencies, and top veteran-friendly schools.

"Providing valuable employment opportunities to returning veterans remains one
of our most mutually-beneficial hiring strategies," said Erwin Raphael,
director, Engineering & Quality, Hyundai Motor America. "Veterans possess the
character, discipline and personal drive that we look for in our employees.
Making it a priority to provide veterans with valuable careers and rebates on
new vehicles is an opportunity for us to give back to those who have dedicated
their lives to our country."

USVM's goal is to open up immediate, lucrative employment, business and
supplier opportunities for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled
veterans and veteran business owners within the federal government as well as
corporate America. We link companies and government entities to qualified
career and business candidates from the ranks of the nation's veterans. We
facilitate veterans' transition from military to civilian life through the
latest information on careers, employment and educational opportunities, and
financial, benefits and business advice.
