Did you know about 10 percent of the veterans in our country are women?

Statistically, they face a higher rate of unemployment then their male counterparts.

NBC News spoke with the director of the Veteran's Administration's center for women veterans. She says many women have the perception that if they didn't serve in combat, they are not veterans.

The VA is trying to reach out to these women via its website.

If you or someone you know is a woman who served and is trying to find work, you can go to http://www.va.gov/.
