There has been some encouraging news on overall veterans' unemployment. But among post-9/11 veterans, unemployment was unacceptably high at 9.3 percent during the third quarter of 2013. And shockingly, the very youngest veterans, ages 18-24, have experienced jobless rates as high as 20 percent and above. HUD has reported that more than 62,000 veterans were homeless on a given night in 2012. And according to the Center for Budget Policy and Priorities, 900,000 veterans relied on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — better known as food stamps — to feed their families in 2011.
