The purpose of this research is to examine the positive aspects of governmental employment policies for veterans, with a specific focus on veterans that have deployed overseas since September 11, 2001. This research draws upon mostly statistics from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics and from the outcomes of the different governmental employment programs for veterans throughout history. The major findings of this research shows that the unemployment gap between veterans and non-veterans is significant. The analysis revealed that a community-based approach to veteran employment was most effective in aiding veterans’ employment searches and positive outcomes. This research will provide valuable guidelines in developing a vision for future governmental employment policies for veterans.
