(CNN)--More veterans are finding work when they come back from war.
The jobless rate for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans is down to 7-point-6 percent.
That's five points lower than a year ago.
It's also well below the national unemployment rate of 8-point-3 percent.
Many employers are making it a point to hire vets.
This week, The Walt Disney Company launched a new initiative called "Heroes Work Here."
The program is expected to recruit one-thousand vets over the next three years.
