This situation, while a problem for all job seekers and entrepreneurs, is especially challenging for veterans who can - and do - make valuable contributions in the private sector. If anything, veterans have considerable technical, leadership and life experiences that only the military can confer, abilities that unite individuals of all incomes and backgrounds, transforming each person into a model of integrity, discipline and resourcefulness. These are key strengths that every business needs, the very ingredients of long-term prosperity and respect.
