Military Veterans Back to Work

Leaving the military can be a daunting experience, how can we help get them back into business?
Statistics from www.military.com says the national unemployment rate for post 9/11 military veterans is up to 9%, and upwards of 30% for younger veterans. This is far above the national average.
What can be done to help these people who have served us so well, how can we repay their unselfish dedication?
Veterans have special skills that can be used in the business world. The first things that come to mind are dedication, experience and leadership acquired in the military. These skills make them ready for just about any challenge the workforce could possibly present.
The answer lies in us helping them use their skills and getting them back into the commercial world.
My way is to present a seminar talking about the things they can do and how they should go about creating a business career.
My seminar is being organized in conjunction with the Government’s SBA. I have set aside 2 ½ – 3 hours for this session to set out my ideas and business plan for Vets. I have also allowed time for an extensive Q&A. Here is the promo for the talk from the SBA:
