The jobless rate among former military service members continues to decline.
The unemployment rate for all veterans in February dropped to 6.9 percent down from 7.7 percent in January 2013.
Yet, the rate for Post 9-11 veteran remains above the national average.
The Gulf War II-era veterans monthly unemployment rate decreased to 9.4 percent in February. But, the national rate for civilians is 7.7 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The good news is the trend continues downward. Unemployment was 11.7 percent in January for Post 9-11 veterans.
And just over a year ago, more than 1 million veterans were unemployed but today that number has dropped down to 772,000.
