Hiring veterans is more than a patriotic gesture—it makes good business sense, offers Susan Fallon, vice president of global strategies and business development at Monster Government Solutions. Business leaders recognize veterans not only for their talents and work experiences, but also for their leadership skills and their adherence to discipline, teamwork, time management and respect for the hierarchy.

“It’s good for employers and good for veterans, who are a tremendously talented and a proven work force—the kind of folks you want in your companies,” Fallon says.

U.S. veterans—on the day our nation sets aside especially for you, we at SIGNAL want to say thank you for all you’ve done overseas and domestically to make life better for everyone who lives here. From fighting vicious enemies to rescuing people during natural disasters, you step up when others run. We appreciate the sacrifice of you and your families. Welcome home.

A Facebook app from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) allows supporters to join a virtual Veterans Day march and earn two vets tickets to the Super Bowl. To join the online march, interested Facebook users can simply "like" the IAVA page. This opens up access to the app, which allows you to donate your status or Twitter update to the cause. The app shows a leader board of how many people in each state have donated their statuses. Two veterans from the state that shows the most support will receive tickets to the Super Bowl.
