Time: ___

America’s veterans answered the call of duty, and many sacrificed in return. Now, more and more employers—both large and small—are stepping up to repay their sacrifice, at least in some small measure, by hiring veterans with disabilities. As a result, these employers are realizing several benefits. When you hire a veteran, your organization gets a loyal, team-oriented employee with job-ready skills, tested leadership abilities and a strong, mission-focused work ethic. Whether you are starting or expanding a veteran-hiring initiative, or seeking to reduce barriers to employment; promote job satisfaction, productivity and retention; or translate and understand the skills and experiences that a veteran can bring to your workforce, this guide equips you to make sound employment decisions that include veterans with disabilities.

For as long as there have been wars, western civilizations have recorded the existence of common psychological reactions to traumatic events. Now we must confront the challenges of assisting a new generation of combat veterans. For the entire 21st century, America has been at war. U.S. service members have fought to keep our nation safe from a variety of threats around the world and terrorism at home. With the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan taking an enormous toll on the health of returning veterans, and in light of overdue recognition of service-related trauma suffered by women veterans, this booklet is a continuation of our dedication to assist and advocate on behalf of all disabled veterans and their families. It is in keeping with our pledge to never forget or leave behind our fellow warriors.
