This article is a bit of an understatement of the railroads hiring of our returning hero's. BNSF and CSX railroads are in the top 10 of all employers hiring vet's...UPRR and Norfolk Southern in the next 20. Great companies, profitable even during the worst recession since the big one, with great pay, retirement benefits, and health care. Railroads are the backbone of our country, and they invest billions every year in maintaining and expanding their infrastructure (their money, not the taxpayers). And, they are by far the most fuel efficient means of moving freight....they can haul a ton of freight 475 miles on one gallon of fuel. Next time you hear those whistles, just think....that's the sound of jobs and money!
