Besides a thank you, one of the best things you can give to a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan is a job. There are 220,000 of them currently seeking work in the United States, at a time when the economy is seeing slow growth. While that number might seem daunting, there is some good news. The government has stepped in and formed new programs to help veterans move into the civilian workforce. Additionally, veterans' skills and experience can help land well-paid job in a growing field.
