For years it hasn’t been looking good for veterans trying to find a job after serving their country, but according to new data, veterans are finding it easier to be employed now more than ever.

According to the Military Times, a number of veteran service organizations and popular brand names began working on the problem and before we knew it, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is reporting that veteran unemployment rates for the latest generation of soldiers dropped below four percent in 2018:

The 3.8-percent annual unemployment rate for 2018 continues a seven-year trend of declines since 2011, when post-9/11 veteran unemployment peaked at 12.1 percent – more than triple the 2018 rate.

For veterans of all generations, the unemployment rate was similarly low, dropping to 3.5 percent from 3.7 percent last year.
