Veterans are critical to our economy

Recently, Starbucks announced that they would be hiring 10,000 armed forces veterans and spouses of active-duty servicemembers over the next five years. This news has helped shine the spotlight on the value of adding veterans to the workforce, and the timing is perfectly matched with Veteran’s Day.

The old saying is that freedom isn’t free, and we have countless military veterans and active duty members to thank for keeping us safe and having the honor of taking our freedoms for granted. But a tremendous challenge remains in transitioning veterans to civilian life. Below, we’ve outlined several resources not only for businesses that want to tap this uniquely talented pool, and for vets looking to take their leadership experience and start their own business.
