WATCH: Navy Service Member Tells Unemployed Veterans to Trust God for a Job

Chaz Logan, 24, is a nuclear machinist mate currently serving in the U.S. Navy. The Texas native, who is used to traveling around the world on aircraft carriers, will soon embark on a new journey — life as a civilian.

Having a job lined up when he returns to civilian life will make that transition much easier. But it’s a challenging task these days, considering the high unemployment rate among veterans.
The percentage of unemployed veterans remains much higher than the overall national unemployment rate. With current and future troop drawdowns, the unemployment rate for veterans could go even higher.
Trusting God for a Job
Currently, the U.S. Department of Labor reports nearly 12.1 percent of veterans who served since September 11, 2001, are unemployed.
In Logan’s age group, the statistics are even worse.
A recent report found more than 20 percent of 18 to 24-year-old vets do not have a job, which is well over the national unemployment rate that continues to hover around 9 percent.
“I’m going to pray to God about it, put it in God’s hands. I do as much as I can,” Logan told CBN News.
“Whatever God’s plan is for me and my family, He’ll put us where He needs us and where He wants us, so I just do as much as I can on my part,” he said.
Logan has enlisted the help of Bradley-Morris, Inc.,a company whose mission is to deliver military-experienced talent to America’s top companies, free of charge to veterans.
Tim Best, a U.S. Army veteran, is the senior vice president of client services.
“We match military job seekers to jobs out in the private sector,” Best told CBN News.
