AMARILLO, TX - When it comes to finding jobs, Texas is very veteran friendly. Over the past year, more veterans have found jobs in Texas, than any other state in the nation.

Nearly 47,600 veterans started a new job in the state. In Amarillo, about 740 inactive service members joined our workforce.

Marshall Green with the Texas Veterans Commission attributes the success to veteran catered programs and state and local business leaders .

 "They have more of a reliability on veterans because of the training they went through, I think it's a bigger deal in Texas than in any other state"

Green also tells us, there could be even more veterans placed with jobs in Amarillo, but he thinks, many are unaware of the services offered.
