Unemployment Figures for Disabled Vets

"To help these returning men and women, the government has created specific career counseling services and initiatives, but the nonprofit sector has also stepped up and introduced programs designed to help these former members of the military discover new careers in the civilian workforce.

A 2007 report by the Veterans Affairs Department found that 18% of veterans--not just those with disabilities--who had looked for jobs within one to three years of discharge were unemployed; 25% of veterans who did find jobs earned less than $21,840 a year." -from this article
