I do have a lot of sympathy for their plight, but the fact is, that many of the vets came right out of high school, went through basic training and learned skills that cannot get them a job after their stint is over. That is why there is the GI bill and every single one of them should use it; they earned it, and it might be their only hope for a decent job in America, that loves to send all our decent manufacturing jobs overseas.

Another sign of the Obama economy. 1000 trained and hard working people cannot find a legitimate job because the government has a strangle hold on the economy. It is truly sad that the federal government put the people is this predicament.

Thankfully the US House is thinking his through more carefully.
