Veterans enjoy slew of freebies on Veterans Day

Veterans enjoy slew of freebies on Veterans Day | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Veterans Day is not only a time to honor those who have served in the military: For American businesses, it's also a time to back that appreciation up with a freebie.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I think it's great that business give back to our veterans here in the U.S. and in every country. It does seem to me, however, that there should be a better way of doing it. I like that Great Clips is giving out a deal that can be used over the next 6 weeks and think that a better method. And how about all the vets who can't get to that free lunch? Some are too old, too sick, or just working—I'd like to see business doing something for them as well. I have a great idea. How about all those businesses send some money to the V.A. and have that bureaucracy distribute it to all our vets? Heck, they may get 2 cents of each dollar by the next millennium.

Seriously, I do support the honoring of those who have fought for their country and I hope you do as well.

The hottest jobs for military veterans

The hottest jobs for military veterans | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
A survey of military-friendly employers lists the top 20 ‘hot jobs’ veterans might want to consider.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Since one of the biggest problems for vets is expalining how their military experience and training translate into the needs of civilian companies, perhaps the VA and DOD can start working at providing such translations. Seems like a simple-minded way to help our vets get employment.
