Military Veterans Face Large Challenges Post-Service: LIMS is offering a solution by lining up career opportunities for 200 post-9/11 veterans
July 19, 2016
Upon exiting the military, veterans are forced to fend for themselves while attempting to transition back into society. A study done by USC School of Social Work shows that nearly eight out of 10 service members leave the military without a job, and expect to find meaningful employment that provides adequate remuneration once they leave the military.
There is a gap in communication between the military and local organizations and businesses. Over two-thirds of today’s veterans reported difficulties adjusting to civilian life, and claimed, upon completion of service, that they do not know where to go or who to contact to seek help.
Jimmy Lifton, President of LIMS, is taking steps to help be part of the solution. “This is a national issue that all businesses should be actively pursuing a solution for. There is no reason why every veteran should not have the means to be financially independent and self sufficient.” says Lifton.
