(OPEN):
ACCORDING TO JUST-RELEASED FIGURES FROM THE "BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS", ROUGHLY 722-THOUSAND AMERICAN VETERANS ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF WORK.  ONE OF THE ORGANIZATIONS WHOSE MISSION IS TO HELP VETERANS FIND JOBS IS THE "CALL OF DUTY ENDOWMENT"DAN GOLDENBERG IS THE ENDOWMENT'S EXECUTIVE-DIRECTOR--AND A "NAVY RESERVE"-COMMANDER...

(GOLDENBERG):
"FIGHTING THE WARS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, OUR COUNTRY HAS CREATED MORE THAN ONE-POINT-TWO-MILLION VETERANS SINCE 'NINE-11'.  AND, AS THOSE VETERANS RETURNED HOME TO ONE OF THE WORST ECONOMIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY, THEY FACED A TOUGH, NEW CHALLENGE IN FINDING A JOB.  THIS YEAR, WE'RE PLEDGING OVER FOUR-MILLION DOLLARS TO THE TOP VETERAN-EMPLOYMENT NONPROFITS IN AMERICA.  EACH OF THOSE ORGANIZATIONS WILL HAVE MET OUR 'SEAL OF DISTINCTION'-STANDARDS--WHICH REALLY MEANS THAT THEY'VE DEMONSTRATED THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY, IN PLACING VETERANS INTO JOBS.
"

(BRIDGE):
AS BOTH A VETERAN AND A BUSINESS-PROFESSIONAL HIMSELF, GOLDENBERG DISCUSSES WHAT MAKES THE ENDOWMENT DIFFERENT...

(GOLDENBERG):
"WE BRING A BUSINESS-MINDSET TO OUR GIVING--BY RIGOROUSLY SCREENING APPLICANTS, MEASURING PERFORMANCE, AND DEMANDING ACCOUNTABILITY.  ORGANIZATIONS THAT MEET THEIR GRANT-COMMITMENTS CAN EXPECT ONGOING OR INCREASED SUPPORT--AND WE HELP THEM GET THERE, THROUGH ADVICE, CONNECTIONS, AND RESOURCES.  WE WANT TO GROW THE BEST-PERFORMING ORGANIZATIONS--TO ENSURE THAT AS MANY VETERANS AS POSSIBLE ARE BEING HELPED.  WE'VE BEEN TOLD, ON MANY OCCASIONS, THAT WE HAVE THE MOST-RIGOROUS--YET SUPPORTIVE--APPROACH IN VETERANS' PHILANTHROPY.  AND, IT'S PRODUCING GREAT RESULTS.
