                     Endowment with the “Seal of Distinction”
Fairfax, Va. - CPS Professional Services, LLC is proud to
announce that Easter Seals Veteran Staffing
Network (VSN) was recognized for its topnotch service to
directly assist unemployed veterans in securing
meaningful employment. The Call of Duty Endowment
presented Easter Seals with the “Seal of Distinction”
award at a press conference held at the National Press
Club in Washington D.C. The award includes a $30,000
unrestricted grant and the opportunity to receive
significant additional funding from the Endowment.

Easter Seals Serving DC | MD | VA’s VSN was one of seven
organizations chosen from among the 60,000 organizations providing services to veterans in the
United States. Criteria for the award included the number of veterans placed in jobs, average cost
per placement, and a profile of typical veterans served, among other categories. All awardees were
vetted by the Call of Duty Endowment and independently evaluated by Deloitte Consulting.

The award was presented by General Jim Jones (USMC, Ret.), who has more than 40 years of
experience in military and veteran affairs. Since his retirement from the Marine Corps in 2007,
                                              Jones has remained involved in national security and
                                              foreign policy issues, including serving as National
                                              Security Advisor to President Barack Obama.

                                            Phil Panzarella, Immediate Past Chairman of the
                                            Board of Easter Seals Serving DC | MD | VA, attended
                                            the press conference and was very proud of the
                                            achievement. “What an honor and clear indication of
                                            the viability and impact of our program,” Panzarella
                                            said.
