falcon...This guy had the job before he served and was fully entitled to get that job, at the same rate of pay, back following his service. There's nothing to attack here, falcon...take a break! It's got nothing to do with anti-labor, anti-union, anti-public employee!

Somebody (probably the town council) in Truman messed up big time. The legal fees alone will be more than it would have cost them. In a tiny town like that, everybody is affected. I found it interesting that there were no quotes by local residents.

I was fortunate to return to an employer which had supported my Reserve Career before and after my 2006 year long deployment to Kuwait. More Fellow Service People I know, than not, were not benefitted the same easy transition into and back out of Active Duty. Thank You ISD #286 Brooklyn Center School District for your support! A Reservist is "Twice the Citizen".

If any Citizen has to perform military duty, it is a disgrace that their employer cant give these people their jobs back. They are serving their country not taking a vacation. Someone has to protect this country...We should reward them not punish them

Good for you that you got your job back! Hope this serves notice to other businesses that they can't pull that crap. Thanks so much for serving your county. - a Vietnam vet.

This young man is the best of what America stands for in the world and we should salute him. I am proud of him for his service to our country and I think others should do the same.

Thank you for your service and I'm glad the Justice department sued and won. It's just a waste of taxpayers money that Truman was trying to ignore the law. Plus it's insulting to the military.

I've said it before, if one of your employees has been called to active duty, the only legitimate reason you have for not restoring his or her job, is that you are no longer in business. Cities and States vary rarely have such an excuse.
