My brother has been out since the spring, and he has yet to find a job. I always thought that there was job placement assistance, but I guess it hasn't quite worked out for him.
Apparently, this is faily common now. I found this article on CNN about how hard it is for veterans to find a job today: http://www.cnn.com/2011/11/21/living/hired-after-military-cb/index.html 
Have you thought about life after the military as far as jobs go?
