Michele, Upwork is a GLOBAL platform.  Your comment is more than a little out-of-place.

 

I'm hoping that it was inadverent and unintened to come across as it did -

Nope it was exactly how it sounded. I was looking for a local region and within that region I was targeting a specific group of people. Sorry if you don't agree.

Upwork is global but don't force that down my throat. Upwork new features now allows me to choose local or not. I just report all the fake accounts as I find them.

 David, Wendy's response was clearly directed at Michele, as indicated at the start of her post.

I would love to hire only vets since I am one. But that's not possible. Yet. For now you have to market yourself as one. And others willl fake it and the client has to weed them out.

Sorry.

At least I can not limit my region of people i want to hire. Thanks upwork!

David,

 

You can search the group and specifically invite freelancers who are U.S. veterans. Also, you can specify in your job post that you prefer freelancers who are members of the group:Screenshot_5.png

Excellent.

This was the entire intention of this post in the first place.

I am glad it's possible now.

I will try it next job.

Thanks.
