- The 25 Best Places For Veterans To Live. Veterans thinking of shipping off to a new city should consider the obvious factors like cost of living and regional economic health. But they may also want to understand the size of the veteran population, whether the local job market has a demand for military skills and the quality of its Veterans Affairs health facilities.
- Five myths about female veterans. Veterans Day is an occasion to recall the service of our troops. But women’s stories have often been absent from those recollections. Works of fiction and nonfiction, memoirs (such as Mary Jennings Hegar’s), documentaries (including “The Invisible War”) and dramas (such as “Blood Stripe”) have helped show this side of the armed forces.
- Veterans and Reservists Are Your Secret Talent Weapon. But, Careful, You May Lose Them. When men and women join the U.S. military, they understand that they may give their lives for America. And the service they give, particularly those in the five armed services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) in war zones, can be tough. So, when these people, together with Reservists and National Guardsmen, come home and rejoin the civilian workforce, they’re prime candidates to make a difference.
- Veterans Receive Warm Welcome in Washington. When Harold Collins, 83, flew into Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport with nearly 70 fellow veterans on Oct. 18, he received a welcome far different than when he returned from Vietnam after his service in the Army.
- A Look at the Changing Future of America’s Veterans. On Nov. 11, the U.S. marks Veterans Day. The federal holiday – formerly Armistice Day – marks the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I in 1918 and now celebrates the millions of veterans of the U.S. armed forces.
