You know those door-buster sales after Thanksgiving? They're nothing compared to the online buying that happened in China today. More on the record-breaking shopping extravaganza known as "Singles Day."

On this Veteran's Day, we take a look at just one program that tries to help veterans with not just jobs but good, career positions.
