Any emphasis on hiring veterans?

I read where Starbucks, Walmart and other companies are taking extra steps to hire veterans and their family members.

I also read where our Gov. Inslee and our Washington state legislators have signed off on $8 billion-plus in tax breaks/incentives for the Boeing Co. to keep production work here, for their Puget Sound airplane factories.

Meanwhile, the Boeing Co. is laying off veterans … how many this year? I don’t know…

I only know of one … me.

Just sayin’.
