Who really cares? WHO should do a story about all the people who can't find work and feed their familys and how they lost their jobs.

Wow those are some sad posts! You all should be thankful for the hardwork these soldiers are doing so you can live in a country where unemployment is paid! They are selfless people who work 7 days a week and have to sacrafice being with their family for a year.

I just have one question for the guy that said "who cares"....

How likely is it that you will get your butt shot at in the next year? Last I knew, there were no gun toting "job placement specialists" at the Iowa work force developement center..

We are placing a significant number of our US service men and women in harms way. Most of them will get their butts shot at on a daily basis for the next year...They're all running a significant risk of coming home in a box and never seeing their home and family again.

Now, what was that you were whining about????

You live by the sword you die by the sword. Its funny when they do come back with PTSD and god knows what else they will be standing right next to me looking for a job as well. So what was it all for. Maybe the people behind the war making effort will employ those that made them so rich but I doubt it.What I would say to those coming back looking for work is "Welcome to the soupline tard did ya have fun over there?I'd bet I had more fun here".:)

Hey DDDDAAAA.....my son is one of those soldiers in the picture!!!!! He lost his job, joined the Army, now he is working and able to feed his family but may lose his life so people like you can have the freedom to sit home and make stupid comments.

Think again before you post something so insulting!!! God bless our troops!!!

To all those who believe having a job in the U.S. is a more impormant subject than those serving us really need to grow up i have a brother and a fiance going over and I'm thank them along with every other one of those soldiers going overseas they have something you must not have courage, bravery, and a most of all a heart and care for more than just themselves they could have sat home postin dumb comments but no they are actually doing something with themselves and they will get that job before any of you do because they have the military and have shown loyalty to everyone and that makes me really sad that Iowa has such little minded self centered people living here.....find a new state and don't ever talk bad about our american soldiers.
