Veteran’s Day: Remembering and Looking Forward
November 10, 2011 Leave a comment
On this Veteran’s Day we recognize those who have served our nation and continue to do so in their daily lives. We appreciate and honor these members of society not only as veterans, but as our loved ones as well: they’re our dads, sisters, uncles, grandparents and friends.
We recognize that coming back into the workforce after the trauma they’ve experienced is no easy feat, so we’ve provided some links below for recent veteran employment opportunities. We’ve also listed some sites for the family members and loved ones who also fight every day to help make life better for their veterans.
