While employment prospects have steadily improved for all job seekers as the economy continues to strengthen, at least 449,000 veterans are looking for a job today.

For a view on the situation by Vice Admiral Norb Ryan USN (Ret.) of the Military Officers Association of America, see this commentary on Military.com.
