Returning Veterans
PTSD afflicted returning veterans

Returning Veterans are considered unemployable due to percieved fear that they're "waco-Vet's." God,through all of us, can ensure employment for our HERO'S

'War Vets find job search difficult.'

The Dept. of Veterans Affairs report of 2-8-08 obtained by The Associated Press...

The '07 study by Abt Associates Inc. found 18% of veterans who sought jobs ...were unemployed, while one out of four who did find jobs earned less than $21,840 a year.

Also,issues of mental health has turned into a double-edge sword for returning veterans. More publicity has generated more public awareness and federal funding for those who return home different from when they left."

However, more publicity- regarding the 'Wacko Vet' myth-has also made some employers more cautious to hire a veteran,"
said Joe Davis, spokesman for Veterans of Foreign Wars.

"The federal government needs to accelerate its hiring and training of these young veterans to fill the ranks of the retiring Boomer generation," he said.

Employment should not be withheld from those who have ensured our freedom of employment.
