Share of Cost, Keeping our commitment to our veterans
After World War II, with millions of American GI’s returning home, President Harry Truman appointed General Omar Bradley to run the Veterans Administration. Bradley was a popular choice, and his steely approach to helping veterans was widely admired.
“We are dealing with veterans, not procedures; with their problems, not ours,” Bradley famously said.
You’ll find the same kind of commitment to today’s generation of veterans in the Congressional Veterans Jobs Caucus, a bipartisan group of 37 Senators and 27 Representatives brought together by the joblessness crisis among our returning military heroes.
More than two million Americans have served our nation in Iraq, Afghanistan and other post 9/11 missions around the world. Now, as these men and women return home, they are confronting yet another challenge – finding a job.
