Speaking in Albany, New York this week, President Obama highlighted a 'to-do' list of five specific things Congress can do right now to grow the economy and create more jobs. On that to-do list: making sure veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan can find a good job once they come home.
The President said, "Congress should help our veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan find a good job once they come home. Our men and women in uniform have served this country with such honor and distinction -- a lot of them come from upstate New York. Now it's our turn to serve them. So we should create a Veterans Job Corps that helps them find work as cops and firefighters, employees at our national parks. That’s on our 'To-Do' list."
Our President's record of strong support for those who served is clear. Watch the President's weekly address here and then join us and spread the word by clicking here.
