The unemployment rate for military veterans is decreasing, according to Vantage Point.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the unemployment rate for all veterans in October is 6.3 percent--below the national average of 7.9 percent. For post-9/11 veterans, the rate is about 10 percent.

While the numbers are encouraging, many veterans still cannot find work.

Given that it’s the seventh-most populous state in the nation, it’s no surprise that Ohio’s highways and interstates are among the most heavily traveled in the U.S. The wear and tear caused by millions of vehicles traversing the state every year means our highways and interstates need frequent and extensive repairs, and those repairs mean […]
If you were recently hurt in a crash, getting medical attention for your injuries was likely your first and top priority. However, emergency medical treatment is expensive, especially for injuries suffered in car accidents.
