There's a push to hire tens of thousands of veterans.
The chairman of the investment group Blackstone announced the initiative yesterday as part of a partnership with the White House.
Blackstone plans to hire 50,000 veterans across its various companies over the next five years.
The chairman also says Blackstone will create support structures to help veterans transition into private sector careers, including a management trainee program.
