The unemployment rate among Indiana’s veterans is about the same as the state’s overall average of 5.4-percent.

But when you break it down and look specifically at veterans who enlisted after 9/11, that number jumps to about 1 in 10 -- twice the state’s total unemployment rate.

In the final part of our three-part series on Hoosiers re-entering the workforce, Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Gretchen Frazee looks at programs helping soldiers get back into civilian life -- and at the roadblocks standing in veterans’ way.
