More employers are recognizing the value in recruiting, hiring, and retaining our nation’s veterans. There are important reasons to employ returning service members, including those with disabilities and combat-related injuries, especially Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in conjunction with the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), and the Hire Vets First initiative, have instituted a program designed to support the successful employment of returning service members with TBI and PTSD. The program, America’s Heroes at Work, is targeted to employers and provides a variety of helpful information and tools to assist in the reemployment process. This Tuesday, November 11, Veteran’s Day 2008, remember those who served for our country and honor those who returned from service by visiting the America’s Heroes at Work website to learn more about this special initiative.
