How can we, as a nation of do-gooders and bureaucrats, best solve the problem of high unemployment among returning veterans?
In 236 years of nationhood, we have yet to solve the problem of high unemployment among returning veterans. Today, younger vets face an unemployment rate approaching 30%. Some of this is explained by the fact that veterans don't know how to sell themselves to corporate America, who, in turn, has little concept of how these people can contribute. Yet these veterans are the flower of our society. They've demonstrated dedication, teamwork, leadership, mission focus and, above all, a drive to serve. Why are we not hiring these men and women? We have resources and we have the will to help. What's the best way to serve those who serve us?
