Governor Jack Markell talks about how we can help veterans who have fought for us with jobs when they return home. This week, the Governor and Delaware lawmakers announced the Veterans Opportunity Tax Credit legislation which would incentivize companies to hire veterans.
In the last ten years, millions of Americans have served their nation in Iraq or Afghanistan.
In answering the call to action, these brave men and women volunteered to put themselves directly in harm’s way, thousands of miles from home. And when they came home, so many found – and are still finding – the recession that had years of devastating effects on our national economy hit veterans who served in those foreign conflicts even harder.

The “Veterans Opportunity Tax Credit” would give companies a $1,500 annual tax credit for each recent veteran they hired.
