Sunday is Veterans Day, and it brings good and bad news for those who’ve served our nation.

First, some local companies and state employment officials are helping more veterans find jobs after their military service ends. Unfortunately, the jobless rate among veterans remains higher than that of the general population.

Second, the Janesville Patriotic Society is adding to the monuments to Veterans Plaza at Traxler Park. Unfortunately, due to recent inclement weather and damage during shipping to one of two new monuments, they won’t be dedicated, as planned, at Sunday’s Veterans Day ceremonies.

How can you help lift and honor those who’ve sacrificed much to serve our country? We’ll explain in Sunday’s editorial.
