Ohio's Democratic U.S. senator says more can be done to help veterans use their military service to fit into the civilian job market.
Speaking Thursday at a Cincinnati job resource center, Brown said that bipartisan legislation called the "Troop Talent Act" can help ease high unemployment among veterans.
Earlier, Republican Sen. Rob Portman was in Cincinnati to promote legislation to provide support for released convicts to reduce high repeat offender rates. He held a roundtable discussion at a food pantry that offers food-service job training.
