(OPEN):
FINDING GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT IS OFTEN THE FIRST OBSTACLE THAT VETERANS MUST OVERCOME DURING THEIR TRANSITION FROM MILITARY- TO CIVILIAN-LIFE.  THAT'S WHY "AMVETS" IS SPEARHEADING THE "AMERICAN VETERANS ANTI-DISCRIMINATION INITIATIVE".  ACCORDING TO JAY AGG, OF "AMVETS", THE INITIATIVE INVOLVES LEGISLATION IN CONGRESS THAT WOULD PROTECT AMERICA'S VETERANS FROM DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE, HOUSING, AND OTHER IMPORTANT AREAS OF EVERYDAY LIFE...

(AGG):
"
AMERICA PROTECTS SOME PEOPLE FROM DISCRIMINATION IN EDUCATION, HOUSING, AND THE WORKPLACE.  HOWEVER, DESPITE HAVING SERVED WITH HONOR AROUND THE WORLD, WHEN OUR VETERANS TRANSITION FROM MILITARY- TO CIVILIAN-EMPLOYMENT, THEY FACE NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES THAT ARE OFTEN HELD BY HIRING-MANAGERS WHO FAIL TO UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE MILITARY-SERVICE.  'AMVETS' NEEDS YOUR HELP, TO MAKE SURE THAT SERVICE-MEMBERS WHO ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST RECEIVE A CHANCE TO ENJOY THE FREEDOMS THAT THEY FOUGHT FOR:  PLEASE WRITE, E-MAIL, OR CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS--AND ASK THAT THEY SUPPORT THE 'AMERICAN VETERANS ANTI-DISCRIMINATION INITIATIVE'."
