ReThink Ready

Veterans are ready, willing, and able to take on any work opportunity put before them. Yet, they still face some challenges, especially when it comes to what employers and hiring managers still they can do.

In this series, we highlight people, organizations, and programs that are helping change these misperceptions and are urging everyone to ReThink Ready.


Skills learned in the military make veterans a valued addition to the workforce. Despite efforts to eliminate long-standing biases and misperceptions, they can still make it difficult for veterans to get hired. We take a look at one of those stigmas: the idea that all men and women who have served in the military, especially in combat, have post-traumatic stress.
