Colleagues and Fellow Veterans,

The national unemployment rate for October 2016 decreased slightly from 5.0% to 4.9% and the Veteran unemployment numbers for October 2016 remained unchanged at 4.3%.
Thanks to all of you who are working directly or indirectly, to ensure our Veterans have meaningful employment.
