About

Veterans have been an important part of the White House community ever since its foundation in 2010. When someone has dedicated a long and loyal service to the White House, they can apply for Veteran or Very Important Person (VIP). While membership is proof of a prestigious career, both of these groups provide various benefits as well, such as access to WH Headquarters after retirement and being able to run in an election without the requirement to be employed*.

The Department of Veteran Affairs is committed to managing our respected Veterans and VIPs. In addition to overseeing their conduct in the White House, the department is also responsible for all Veteran and VIP applications. They oversee the process of unemployed Veterans returning to work at the White House as well.

(*) The amount and extent of benefits depend on respective group membership.


Secretary of Veterans Affairs

 

The Department of Veteran Affairs is composed of various assistants and headed by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, OllieSafe.

They provide general leadership to the department and manage the Veteran/VIP application process, as well as overseeing the conduct of Veterans and VIPs and taking disciplinary action when deemed necessary. The Secretary has influence over the addition and removal of VIP/Veteran members and has the power to change the requirements for either status by order. The Secretary is appointed by the President.
