A Disabled Veteran Owned Business
Show Your Appreciation for Disabled Veterans
We are a business that has been established to provide disabled veterans with opportunities to work and thrive in the online business world.
We value the skills and experiences veterans have to offer. We honor and thank them by providing jobs so that they and their families can live the American Dream they served to defend.
We are not a charity. We focus on providing a hand up, not a handout.
We do not receive any public funding. We receive a small referral fee for every item you purchase at our store. This referral fee is paid by the merchant and does not add a single penny to your purchase.
100% of our profits go directly to disabled veterans. This is because we are owned and operated by disabled veterans. Everyone that works at RJCFK is a disabled veteran or a direct family member of a disabled veteran.
Please thank your disabled veterans by shopping at our Store.

•Number of veterans in the U.S. as of 2014: approximately 21.2 million
•Percentage of U.S. population that have served in the U.S. Military ~1%
•Percentage of US Congress members that have served in the U.S. Military ~20%
•In August 2014, about 3.4 million veterans, or 16 percent of the total, had a service-connected disability.
•Men age 25 to 34, Gulf War-era II veterans have a higher unemployment rate (7.5 percent) than do nonveterans (6.3 percent).
•Women age 35-to 44 veterans have a higher unemployment rate of 9.0 percent, higher than the rate of 4.8 percent for their non-veteran counterparts.p>
•In 2014, the unemployment rates for male and female Gulf War-era I veterans were 4.0 percent and 5.2 percent, respectively, lower than the rates for their Gulf War-era II veteran counterparts (6.9 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively). .

The real problem lies in the systemic challenges that cause higher rates of unemployment for our veterans.
•Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America surveyed their membership. In that snapshot of over 4,000 new vets, 16% said that they were unemployed. Of their members that are unemployed, 33.8% have been unemployed for longer than a year. More than 17% have been unemployed for more than two years. These data seem to indicate that the unemployment problem is about more than a period of transition to rest and spend time with family.
