    i know it isn’t much but I was surprised they recognized veterans at my center and presented them with a challenge coin. I’ve only been here a few years but have they ever done something like this before?

    That's cool. You got one so you must be a vet. Thanks for your service!

    Never saw anything like that before. In fact when my National Guard unit was mobilized, HR told me I wouldn't have a job when I came back.

    I’m assuming this wasn’t recently because it is a Federal law

    2003 and yes there is a Federal law protecting soldiers from their employers and retaliation. Still can't stop them from threatening you. Only for specific actions.

    Actually it is a really good deal. Do 20 years and when you turn 60 (sometimes younger) you collect a retirement check and even more, free health care for you and your spouse for the rest of both of your lives.

    Our veterans were given camo UPS hats. Though we didn't have enough.

    Exploiting Veterans for a commercial use.
