For many vets, the return to civilian life can be a struggle, a new group called Vet Force One wants to help.
"A lot of veterans are going to start coming home. There's going to be a swell of new veterans in the community all of them looking for a job and looking for a new start," says volunteer Tim Dempsey.
Young returning veterans are often hit hardest when it come to finding a job.
"There's about 28 thousand veterans in the Hamilton County area. The folks that are having the tough time are the ages of 18-24, and that unemployment rate is two or three times higher than the average," says Vet Force 1 President Larry Trabucco.
"The unemployment rate for the veteran populations is about 9 percent. However the younger the veteran gets and the closer they are to their separation the higher that unemployment rate becomes," adds Dempsey.
But it can be a struggle for older veterans too.
"I wasn't even aware of half the veterans programs out there. About a year ago, a good friend of mine told me to go out to the VA clinic. You need some thing like this to let veterans know what's available," says Vietnam veteran George Eiland.
Nick Lemley, a veteran, and business owner, says military skills don't always translate to the private sector.
"Personnel in the military have very good structured training however it just doesn't translate into most civilian jobs. You are used to having certain camaraderie, a certain structure a certain respect. It's very hard coming back to the civilian populace when it's just not like that. Everything is different and you've really got to fight and fend and it's difficult readjustment."
Vet Force One hopes to give vets the tools they need to succeed with other businesses.
"The way that we handle that is connecting them with mentors that truly understand. So the mentors are corporate mentors. They are people right out of middle management that have been successful themselves and they teach them on a one to one basis how to be successful in the corporate world," says Dempsey.
