As We Approach Labor Day...

Anyone who works with veterans will tell you that second to medical and mental healthcare, employment is a critical factor for veterans making a successful transition to civilian life. Often there is no exact fit for a veteran’s military occupation to a civilian job. With less than one-half of one percent of the population serving in our military, employers often don’t know how to recognize the skills a veteran has acquired.  Nobody gets the meaning of having a “mission” better than a well-trained military service member.

So, on this Labor Day, when we honor what American workers have accomplished and get ready to get back to work after summer, let’s be sure to include the men and women in our military services.
