    You've stated this a minimum of three times in this thread alone; no one isn't arguing this isn't technically correct. You are blurring your limited personal experience into a theoretical proposition that varies widely from your experience. Just because you have not personally had issues regaining employment, does not mean USERRA is completely effective or would be in the way you are advocating. Your position is erroded even further since I've posted a credible news report that cites examples of USERRA's ineffectiveness in influencing civilian employers.

    If at this juncture, you do not understand what is at contention, there is no purpose in continuing. Have a pleasant day.

Yes like every program there is problems which relflects on the employer as stated in previous post, do you want to work for a company that does not adhere to the law and its moral obligation? You state that I have not seen the video, have you read USERRA?
