Default Employing Disabled Veterans

Seem to be a lot of military veterans out here, hoping some of you can give me some guidance. I'm looking to fill a few light manufacturing positions and would like to be able to consider some candidates who served in our military and came back disabled. I think these jobs are somewhat adaptable to folks who might be missing limb(s) or lacking mobility. I did some web searches and found some placement sites for veterans, but nothing that was dedicated to those who are disabled. Any advice you can provide is appreciated.

I believe you can hire anyone who has mobility challenges and get some relief from Sam.

All of our Vets deserve consideration. The system is ignored and broken. Overwhelmed maybe, but the VA hospital here is not a place I would send a friend.

Call the Wounded Warrior Project. They will be able to point you in the right direction.

Good on you as well.

My company (330,000 employees) has a huge veterans program. We just had two vets assigned to my group and they are motivated. What you are doing is admirable.
