“Hire a Hero”

www.hireveterans.com offers employers a place to post “help wanted” notices and provides useful advice for job-hunting vets. Unfortunately, too few vets and employers know about these sites, and promotion is almost non-existent.

Veterans’ unemployment is more than a national embarrassment — it actually hurts national security and adversely affects recruiting an all-volunteer force. Military recruiters acknowledge that nearly half of those who agree to join do so believing that they will be “more employable” after completing military service. Once the word gets out that it is in fact harder to get a job after a “hitch” in uniform — signing up quality recruits gets a whole lot tougher.

Clearly, threats of lawsuits and voluntary programs like these are not enough. It’s time for Congress to provide tangible incentives — like a federal tax break for businesses that hire war vets. It’s the surest way to reward those who have served — and help keep us the home of the brave and the land of the free.
