I think we should take care of them very well. They'll come back with psychological injuries and all the different things. And, they shouldn't have to go through some of this stuff that the post war people back in the 50's and 60's had to go through just to get themselves taken care of again.

As military spouse of a deployed sailor, I believe it's important that employers offer jobs to returning service men and women. It is by law that their current job or something be available for them when they return. It is to a company's advantage to hire armed forces men and women due to their training, work ethic and diverse abilities and qualifications and jobs they have engaged in through their military experiences.

I'm an ex-military man. I just wanted to say that anything we can do no matter what the cost is, we should help our military as they come home. Not only the ones overseas, the ones here in the United States also. They're giving their time and possibly their lives.
