Harris County is second in the nation with the number of returning military personnel.
Many are looking for jobs, but the transition isn't always easy as soldiers reacquaint themselves with the civilian workplace.

Davis is the president of the Texas Veteran Program. She specializes in helping soldiers prepare for the interview process.

"Inch margins all around, no lines, no borders, no fancy stuff," she said.
