Tackling the task of finding jobs for 'citizen soldiers'
from St. Louis Beacon
They serve their country for more than a year in Iraq's intense heat or Afghanistan's bone-chilling cold. They often learn or hone skills during their military service that can be applied to civilian work. And they return home expecting open doors. But for many of the nation's "citizen soldiers" — reservists and members of deployed National Guard units — arriving back home is a bitter disappointment. Not only do they have trouble finding good jobs in the slow economy, but some have trouble convincing potential employers that their service is a plus, rather than a minus.
