Joblessness among US military veterans remains higher than the civilian population. Veterans deployed overseas for prolonged periods struggle to find work because of the traumas of war as well as training that did not translate into the civilian world.
Women veterans also have a harder time finding jobs due to the same reasons: poverty, homelessness, and suicide. When female veterans are in need of health services, they find that there are fewer programs specifically designed for them and must look to other sources. Thus, having health issues also limits their ability to find employment.
