WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is proposing steps to help veterans find work as firefighters, cops and park rangers.

The president says veterans who have risked their lives defending America should get the opportunity to rebuild America when they return from deployment.

Obama visited a fire station Friday in Arlington, Va. The president expanded on plans in his State of the Union address. Obama wants federal help for communities that make it a priority to recruit veterans, and connect veterans with jobs rebuilding local communities and national parks.

He says he wants to do all he can to make sure troops come home to new jobs and opportunities.
