In honor of our veterans

The Senate passed a bill by a vote of 95-0 yesterday to help veterans get jobs when they come home. It gives tax credits to companies that hire disabled veterans and expands training opportunities. The bill still needs to pass the House. According to the Associated Press, there are 240,000 unemployed veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. According to the White House, there are 1 million jobless military veterans.
