Today's Memorial Day edition of salary trends, career stories and job news focuses on military veterans.
For many, today is marked by BBQ, beer and fanfare; for others, though, it's a somber day for reflection and reverence. My dad, a Vietnam veteran, always reminded me of the significance of Memorial Day growing up, and if I was lucky, he'd sometimes tell stories about the happier memories he shared with fallen comrades. I have a half-dozen close friends currently serving overseas and a half-dozen more who have returned from a tour of duty in the last year. I'm proud to honor and remember all of their sacrifices today.
