U.S. Military Veterans and Their Rights

As a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, I understand how difficult it is to put your civilian life on hold to return to, or join up for, active duty. If you choose to serve, your acceptance of this responsibility should not become a disability when you return home. Vets have job protections under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). Don't lose out, or lose your job, because you don't know what your rights are.
