A note Alaskan employers regarding returning veterans

Now you can recieve a $5,600.00 tax credit for hiring a Iraq or Afghanistan veteran. Now you can recieve a $9,600.00 tax credit for hiring a wounded warrior. Now there are no excuses for not hiring Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

President Obama signed this bill into law Nov. 21, 2011; it is now the law of the land. Now our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans will move to the front of the line for job interviews and job opportunities. More than any other group of Alaskans, our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families have earned this!

The war in Iraq is over! Our troops are coming home. May the same thing happen in afghanistan and soon, very soon.
