Vermont lawmakers return to work this week after their Town Meeting break with little indication the state’s fiscal picture is getting any brighter.

Over the next few years, an estimated one million military service members will hang up their uniforms and try to return to civilian life. But are our colleges and communities doing everything possible to ease that transition? That was the big question at an all-day veterans summit held over the weekend at Lyndon State College.
