Unemployment is one of the biggest challenges facing returning vets. Gary Hunter, the Director of the Bend Vets Center says a lot of his time is helping these men and women find work in Central Oregon. “These are young men and women who felt good doing what they did overseas and come home and no job and no sense or purpose no direction. So I think jobs are number one. I read over the weekend in the New York Times that the unemployment rate for veterans coming home is 30%.” Hunter says many of the veterans have luck finding work as mechanics or truck drivers.
