Some vets get pink slips instead of tickertape
Last year Mike Vahey returned from a four-year enlistment, including duty in Iraq and Kuwait, where he was a sergeant on an Army diving team inspecting ports for bombs. When he returned home he expected his job as an engineer at a General Motors plant in Newport, Del., would be waiting for him. "There wasn't a doubt in my mind that my job would be there when I got back," said Vahey, 40, who had worked for GM since 1997, most recently as a quality launch engineer. "I didn't give much thought to it. I felt I was protected and had nothing to worry about."
