Veterans face unemployment at home

Tim Tetz and Paul Rieckhoff on the value of hiring a veteran and how many veterans are coming home to an unemployment check.

Tetz: "The biggest, scariest number...is the fact of the 780,000 veterans who are currently out of a job, two-thirds of them are between the ages of 35 and 64.  And they might not have the resources like the G.I. Bill and many of the other things that these younger veterans have to use."
