FAIRFAX, Va., Aug 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ:MANT) (http://www.mantech.com), a leading provider of technical and engineering services and solutions vital to the nation's interest and security, announced today that the company has been named to Military Times Edge's 2010 "Best Employers for Vets" list.

Companies from the Fortune 1000, Defense News 100 and Federal Times' General Services Administration 250 lists were eligible for consideration. Factors that determined rankings included recruiting practices, training and mentoring, reserve policies and corporate culture.
