FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the 2016 presidential campaign heads into the home stretch, many issues will be debated. But perhaps no issue is more important--or less discussed--than our veterans. Some 2.7 million Americans have served in the military since the attacks of 9-11. Many of them have now left the service and are returning to civilian life. The challenges they face are many. Some of them face health challenges that will require years of treatment and rehab. Others face financial hardships. Many more struggle to find work. But all face challenges of some kind. And all need help. It's been said of those who serve that while some gave all, all gave some. Now, it's our turn to help give something back to our veterans. And the candidate who figures out how to help veterans could win the election. The good news is that all the candidates need to do is look at the business community—we are already showing the way. Just last year the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the George W. Bush Institute launched the Veteran Employment Transition Roadmap. The goal is to help transitioning veterans as they re-enter the workplace. The program offers practical assistance for veterans looking for work. For example, the program helps veterans re-write their resumes so that potential employers can see the connection between what the veteran did in the service and how those skills can translate into civilian work. Meanwhile, President Obama and the Republican Congress created the Returning Heroes Tax Credit that provides a $5600.00 incentive for businesses to hire veterans. Countless businesses across the country have already taken advantage of this and hired veterans. But the help that businesses are providing to veterans extends beyond just employment. Many veterans face financial challenges at home including how to pay for needed repairs. And businesses across the country are finding ways to help here too. I know because my business is one of them.
