“Americans may be shocked to learn that there is no veterans’ unemployment crisis. The unemployment rate in 2014 for post-9/11 veterans was 7.2 percent, the lowest level in seven years of tracking these veterans. ”
“More veterans than ever are looking for work these days. Hire Our Heroes wants to get them working at a job fair scheduled Thursday specifically for vets. "I pray my vehicle never goes down. I pray my health never goes bad," said retired Air Force Staff Sgt. Kelvin Bailey. ”
“The latest crisis at the Department of Veterans Affairs has called into question again the proper role of government in the care of our veterans. Whereas healthcare is clearly in shambles, veterans’ employment is another realm in which well-meaning government involvement has been inefficient at best and ineffective or counterproductive at worst. ”
“Peter Gudmundsson talked about the availability of jobs for returning service members.”
“In an era when “support our troops” bumper stickers are common and billboards and radio advertisements abound with rallying calls to give veterans a job, it is not surprising that many employers are overwhelmed and confused. Good intentions permeate most efforts to employ veterans at the national, state and local levels.”
“Among the fondest memories Peter Gudmundsson ’85 has of his three years as an active-duty U.S. Marine officer was the time in 1987 when, off the coast of Vietnam, he stood on the deck of a U.S. Navy ship looking up at the Soviet planes flying overhead. What was particularly memorable, he says, was not the plane flying overhead, but the reaction of the men in his platoon”

“Mike Rollins is featured on America Now. Recently, America Now visited a RecruitMilitary job fair held at the Hurst Conference Center in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. ”
“News 10 (WTSP) - Every person at the Recruit Military job fair has served their country and many of them have found the transition into the civilian workforce a tough one. They have the work ethic and the discipline, it's the skills they acquired in the military that don't necessarily translate into civilian life.”
“By Naomi Snyder Terry Pack was an aircraft mechanic serving in the Army in Iraq, spending two of the last six years in combat overseas. Now that he's done his service for the country, he can't even get a job doing oil changes at Sears. "It's tough,'' said the unemployed Clarksville veteran, who was honorably discharged in January. "I've been looking for any job." A congressional hea...”
“Reporter Elizabeth Dinh It's the first handshake that could mean the beginning of a new chapter. At least, that's how some men and women saw it at Thursday's Recruit Military job fair for military men and women. Lt. Colonel Vincent Telfare said "I know the economy's hard right now and a lot of people are looking for jobs, so I figured I'd get started early." Talking to employers lik...”

“By Joshua Lee Holton for WMNF Evening News: Seeing combat oversees can be a challenge, but for many veterans, finding a job is a battle that is just as hard to wage. A group called Recruit Military held a job fair for veterans this morning at the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts to help veterans get work. About 300 unemployed veterans were expected to attend a job fair ...”
