Maybe the person in question did not want to hire someone who is statistically in the bottom 5-10 percent of their graduating class?
Or just maybe the person was concerned about hiring someone who not only went back for second helpings, but thirds to an illegal immoral war.
Maybe this person does not see your "service" as valid as you have only served the corporations interest at the cost of hundreds of thousands of civilian lives and not the best interest of the people of the US.
Let's face it the soldiers who come back mentally broken, come back that way because of what they have seen and done.
Playing devil's advocate, but any of these are valid, dontcha think?
She is totally a product of the propaganda behemoth that has cloaked the globe.
Yes I filed a complaint with Veterans affairs, fat lot of good that'll do...
Now, that is a shame, knowing that the government will simply hit "delete" after reading your complaint - but, as a vet are you really surprised....
The American government ensures that propaganda ferments public attitudes such as the one you have encountered (think "all Muslims are terrorists" mentality)
The American government treats their honoured military active, vets and fallen like utter crap.
The American government treats their citizens as terrorists.
The American government treats the rest of the world as "convenient" or "inconvenient"
The American government treats enemies as target practice.

you can do something like that online. No overheads. Start an Ebay shop or link a page from your facebook.
Start that way and see how it goes.

turn it into a positive.
Reading this thread I get the impression some people are living in the past.
("Here's a man who would shoot an innocent kid if ordered to." Wow, I'm really looking forward to working with you!)
'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldiers knew
Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred

Playing devils advocate that may be true.
but how do you explain my graduating from UCLA Summa Cum Laude, even made the who's who list that year.
then again I am what most would consider a dotting father, devoted husband and am working towards the day I become a deacon in my church.
Seems to me all that counterbalances my adventures with 'Uncle Sam's Misguided Children', Oooo- F'ing- Raw...

No but I almost wish I was.
