Helping veterans find jobs

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

America honors its veterans with a parade on November 11. But what many veterans really need are good jobs. Fox 5's Brenda Flanagan reports on what is being done for our heroes at home.

There is no greater way for a business to say thank you to our courageous servicemen and women than providing them with a job. The mission of Helping Heroes Work is to raise awareness to the important responsibility we all share in helping our returning veterans begin this next critical phase in their lives.

Helping Heroes Work will showcase those who are putting our vets back to work. But we'll also profile the outstanding qualities and real world skills our veterans can bring to companies that value highly trained, focused and motivated individuals.

‘You're hired!' Two simple words can change the lives of our returning veterans and their families. They have done their part. Now it's time for us to do ours.

    In a major reversal, President Barack Obama ordered the United States into a broad military campaign Wednesday night to "degrade and ultimately destroy" Islamic State militants in two volatile Middle East nations authorizing airstrikes inside Syria for the first time as well as an expansion of strikes in Iraq. Officials compared the new U.S. mission in Iraq and Syria to the actions in Yemen and Somalia, campaigns that have gone on for years.
