I agree and as a veteran I see the preference that veterans get over
other qualified individuals. Another thing people don't realize is
the feds are paying big money to companies that higher veterans.
Sometimes it's as much as 8K per veteran they hire. It's all about
money to the companies. I was hired with Morgan Stanley based on my
merits with education/experience and I just happened to be a veteran.
Coming from the military, the military works hard but so do other jobs
like people at CSX. The military gets free healthcare, college, etc.
I think the veterans preference is excessive but that's my opinion for
what it's worth.
