Did you know that national guard and reserve members still face the highest unemployment rate of any in the post 9-11 generation?
The vast majority live in northern Virginia and DC area. The DOD's Local Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve groups says those jobs often go away, but their service is designed to get them back to work. You can log onto www.ESGR.mil and get linked up with help in Fredericksburg, Stafford or another home base to get a new job.
