Veterans Facing High Unemployment

Posted on Updated on

A new Washington Post article highlights the bleak employment prospects faced by veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Due to the weak economy and the stigma of service-related mental disabilities, veterans have a higher unemployment rate than their civilian peers.

Many of these young veterans are not married, but for those that are, imagine the difference it would make if the military spouse had a good job as the family transitioned from military to civilian life.

Is your military family prepared to leave the service?  If you are a military spouse, do you have the skills necessary to land a job in today’s economy?  MSCCN offers various training opportunities to help military spouses find not just a job—but a career.
