Unemployed Vets

The unemployment rate is 5.4% for post-9/11 veterans. While this number is lower than it has been in recent years, it is still too high. One of the reason is their specific military skill set isn’t useful in the civilian world. I find it incredible that we can train someone to defend our nation  but not to contribute to society.
