In recognition of Veterans Day, I want to share some facts and resources for those working with our Veterans with disabilities.
Veterans reskilling and/or entering the civilian workforce face numerous challenges. The employment situation for Vets has improved, but many still face barriers to full inclusion in the workplace. In March 2021, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released this update on the employment realities faced by Veterans in 2020.
At the same time, DOL recognizes the unique needs and challenges our Veterans, especially those with disabilities, face. MyNextMoveforVeterans stands to support all Vets in transitioning to the civilian workforce. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Benefits Administration, also has robust online resources for those supporting Vets. This includes a service connected matrix to help Veterans and their support system navigate resource options, based on eligibility.
There are many other local, regional, and national organizations that support our Veterans. I invite you to share those groups here and highlight the work they do every day to honor Veterans' service to our country.
