AAR note:


Railroads and veterans: The nation’s freight railroads have more than a century-long commitment to the nation's military veterans, and this year continue to hire veterans at a robust pace. Between 20% and 25% of current employees, and one in five of the more than 15,000 new employees freight railroads expect to hire in 2012, will have served in our nation’s military.
