I'm with the big guys so we're out here this morning with a group called -- nature.
-- a guy can cost as a guest right now and -- give -- a really quick synopsis of what -- wounded nature does.
Nature's organization designed -- hair veterans who have already served their country give them a way to serve again to serve.
What we -- seeing ads that need to -- nature on the beaches to help clean up to help provide.
Better services for the veteran says that when they're coming back from.
Their deployments or when they're just getting off of their active -- time so you're on the board of wounded nature but you're also still serving I have I have I have actually in the air force reserves.
Fourteen and a half years now -- So there isn't a big change it's happening with the wars winding down.
So many people have been serving continued deployments and so many deployments what are some of the needs -- you're seeing happening right now has some of these soldiers returning.
Well -- -- -- how we are we're -- better job that tracking issues that they may have issues that are coming up whether their physical whether they're emotional Emmental.
And they're continuing to have -- -- and they're being more comfortable coming and at it's is to stand up and say that they need help they need services at.
It really tracking that -- be getting back out to the workforce is definitely huge issue for a lot of people and they come home from deployments -- come out of the military in general what.
And you bring that up -- unemployment rate is extremely high 30% you're saying.
For people who are under under.
24 years old yes that's very it's a very serious issue for veterans.
-- so -- is there any message to employers out there that that you would say.
As -- -- potentially hiring some of our returning military members.
Well I'd say at a military individual military minded individual brings a unique package to the employer they are definitely trained to be a team player there.
They're very skilled in that particular area that they worked -- and that they're willing to take on a talents.
So I think that -- they can provide something that.
The average citizen who hasn't served it's that it's just a different skill set that that a veteran can provide -- -- thank you so much -- we can cut.
On Friday are changing and and I am I'll be Kimberly glass -- on Friday getting married on Friday congratulations thanks for -- -- for us this morning.
