NEED TO KNOW | Coming home: The enduring sacrifice | PBS

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/need-to-know/video/video-coming-home-the-enduring-sacrifice/13441/There's been intense coverage of the nation's suddenly improving economy -- including the sharp drop in the unemployment rate. But one part of that story may have slipped by in a mass of numbers.There's apparently been a dramatic fall in joblessness among America's newest veterans -- those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last month, their unemployment rate actually dipped below the national average. One possible explanation: new tax credits for businesses to hire vets.Still, more than a 150,000 veterans are still unemployed, and some have even become homeless. Need to Know's Maria Hinojosa has been following several of these new veterans since last fall.Need to Know airs Fridays on PBS.
