This morning, the House Veterans Affairs Committee will host a roundtable discussion on veterans' unemployment. AMVETS leaders will follow the morning's discussion closely.

AMVETS has made veterans' reintegration and employment a top legislative priority for 2010, and recent trends point to daunting unemployment statistics among young Iraq and Afghanistan-era veterans.

Today, AMVETS Deputy National Legislative Director Christina Roof sits on the advisory board for the Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment Initiative, seeking to place veterans in more federal government jobs.

American Veteran has been following the veterans' unemployment situation very closely. Check back regularly for updates.
