New York Times has a strong piece by Shaila Dewan describing how returning Iraq vets are having a harder time than other people their age finding work.
Note, in particular, this sentence – The unemployment rate for veterans aged 20 to 24 has averaged 30 percent this year, more than double that of others the same age . . . .
Yanked out of civilian life; sent to an unnecessary war led by liars and incompetents; ignored by the administration who sent them when they came home in coffins; cheated by contractors with ties to the administration (who made billions in no-bid contracts, like Halliburton); spurned by the health care system set up for veterans’ care; and now they can’t find a job.
