The number of Americans who served in the military after September 2001 and have subsequently left the labor force entirely has more than doubled during President Barack Obamas five years in office, increasing by 317,000or 114 percent.
In January 2009, there were 277,000 post-9/11 vets not in the labor force. By January 2014, they had risen to 594,000.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks employment information on veterans, subdividing the data according to the time period in which a person served. BLS publishes numbers for all veterans 18 and over; World War II, Korean War and Vietnam-era veterans; Gulf War era I veterans (who served in the period from August 1990 through August 2001); and Gulf War era II veterans (who served in the period from September 2001 through the present).
