In these tough economic times high unemployment for our veterans can be the norm Many organizations rehabilitate veterans and veterans with disabilities, but fewer successfully enable veterans to find meaningful, long term employment Although many small and large companies have veterans programs, they often fall short of connecting to, recruiting and retaining veterans Transitioning veterans, disabled veterans and military spouses to civilian jobs can be difficult due to their need for flexible work hours and work place Ongoing training also often falls short
