Marine Corps Times has an article about Veteran unemployment and the rate for young veterans is way too high at 11.8% for men and 10.9% for women. This a full 2 percentage points above the national unemployment rate of 9.8%.
For all Veterans, the unemployment rate is actually only 8.3% which isn't bad in this economy.
We need to help young Veterans get ready to leave the service with a solid education from a reputable schools so that they can get a great job. They have sacrificed so much to defend this country - this country needs to take care of them when they are done.
