I have been thinking about something .
I am not expert in the matter but I have been thinking about this most of the day .........
If we have 130,000 troops in Iraq and a large portion of them are reservist , what happens to those people when they are suddenly left without a job ? I know legally they are suppose to have their jobs waiting for them when they return but given the current state of the economy , I highly doubt it .
I know my wife's cousin is in the Army National Guard and he's doing 10 times better serving in the guard over seas than he was doing here in between tours . He got hurt for a small period of time here in Texas and they did not want him back until he was cleared for duty . In the mean time , the only job he could land in the town he lived in was working for Wal Mart changing oil . When he comes back , I am 99% sure he will back to that same job .
