Who We Are
Veterans On Wall Street (VOWS) is an initiative dedicated to honoring former and currently military personnel by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry. With the help of its strategic charity partner, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and through a combination of educational initiatives, mentoring, outreach to the military, employee affinity groups, and an annual conference, VOWS promotes career development, support, and retention of veterans throughout the global financial services industry.
- to continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
- to fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
- to ensure their managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.

Join Us for Stand Up for Heroes
The annual Stand Up for Heroes launched in 2007 as the brainchild of Bob and Lee Woodruff and New York Comedy Festival founders Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox, and has historically been New York’s most anticipated night of hope, healing, and laughter honoring our veterans and military families. VOWS is a presenting partner of the event.
