President Obama spoke earlier this week at the 89th National Convention of the Disabled American Veterans, and noted the challenges that our disabled veterans face upon their return from having served our country. He addressed the significant changes that have recently been made in the handling of claims for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, changes that will make it easier for those veterans suffering from PTSD to receive the care and support they deserve. And the President spoke of the challenge that veterans face in trying to find civilian employment in a challenging economy, saying "And for veterans trying to find work in a very tough economy, we’re helping with job training and placement. And I’ve directed the federal government to make it a priority to hire more veterans, including disabled veterans. And every business in America needs to know our vets have the training, they’ve got the skills, they have the dedication -- they are ready to work. And our country is stronger when we tap the incredible talents of our veterans." Here at GettingHired.com, we couldn't agree more that our veterans do indeed have the skills, the training, and the talent needed today in both the public sector and by private sector employers. And we take this opportunity to again thank our veterans for their service to us and our country.
