Many of us that care about veteran unemployment and homelessness pitch in during the holidays, at Veteran Shelters and homeless programs. I dig it. love it. I support it.
But what about the day after Thanksgiving? As we settle in for a long weekend of
football, yummy turkey sandwiches, and way, way, way, too much pie, I worry about the next day.
For many years now, my husband and I have been involved in solving Veteran Unemployment. My first assistant in the early years of HirePatriots.com was a transitioning Marine Sargent. She was also a Marine wife. Her name was Raelynn.
It was not at all uncommon for Rae to get a weekly call from one of the wives on base worried that there was not enough food in her cupboards for her family. — Hunger on our nations military bases is very real. Hunger, unemployment and homelessness among US Veteran families is ever expanding.
My husband and I are deeply involved in finding full time jobs for Veterans and their spouses. But there is a gap. Many entry level jobs cannot possibly pay all the bills.
It can sometimes take years for a veteran to find sustainable full time employment.
