It's a shame that such a campaign is even necessary! Our veterans deserve all the respect and consideration we can afford them! Getting them back into the workforce, even if some of them did require reasonable accommodation, would go far in helping them to readjust to society, improve their self-esteem, and help them support themselves and/or their families.

It's good but not as good as it seems. How did we end up with several groups, (vets, seniors, college grads, immigrants) searching for work at once? By having a war based on false intelligence, letting corporations be people, fighting the "drug war", through the walmartization of America, etc. It's all bad decisions on bad decisions. Thank you conservatives.

they gave years of their time for low pay, faced bullets and mines...
As much as I need a job, I feel they deserve a cut in the line. Thank you.
As to the politicians that are eager to send OTHER people's kids to war...your kids should be the first one called up. Maybe there would be a few less folks on the hill jonesing for action?

Our Military puts their lives on the line for 'we the people'--they sorely deserve to be treated with the utmost respect due them. Bless them all--past, present and future.
