DarkVader: Poor snowflakes.

The military isn't a jobs program.  And it needs MUCH bigger cuts than this.  But at least they're cutting this much.

If we need a government jobs program, let's create one.  How about the Post Office as a good start?  Bring back twice-daily mail delivery and Sunday mail service.  Hire more people to work in the national parks.  Build a national high-speed rail network, with government employees doing all the construction and running the service.

But stop thinking of the military as a jobs program.  It isn't, and using it like that gets us into stupid wars that we have no business involved in.

your answer is really More Government?

WTF are these guys biatching about?  There are plenty of jobs available unless they expect some cherry contractor position.  They all feel entitiled to a government GS-15 step 10 position or contractor equivalent.

Walmart projects it will hire more than 100,000 veterans during the next five years. As the biggest private employer in the U.S., the company has 1.4 million U.S. associates working in 4,601 stores and clubs in the U.S.
"We believe Walmart is already the largest private employer of veterans in the country, and we want to hire more," said Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. president and CEO, in a statement. "I can think of no better group to lead in revitalizing our economy than those who have served in uniform. Through their service, veterans give us a land of freedom. When they return, it must be to a land of possibility."

They're downsizing and laying off 80,000 people. They should have no problems finding jobs.
