Vet Bet

There was an important article in Monday’s Wall Street Journal about the growing focus of corporate America to hire young military veterans. Shockingly, the unemployment rate for young vets is almost 3% higher than for non-veterans, and unfortunately, there is an increasing flood of newly minted vets who are joining the workforce in a very choppy economy.

It’s a good and smart thing to do.
