yet remained employed with a company. The manufacturer that I was Personnel Director of all too frequently removed folks from managerial positions they didn't work out in and sent them back to their old union jobs. Some quit from humiliation, but most were grateful that they didn't lose their job because they needed it and had years of seniority there.

I also know LOTS of career military, a few of whom were demoted, but obviously still remained in the military.

Why on earth do you think that only military people would know such things?

          We are not arguing with a 'Military folk' we are pointing out someone made a factual error. And now we laugh at you making post after post literally arguing absolutely nothing. Holy cow.

                I KNOW he was not fired from the military. He was fired from his POSITION... And being FIRED in the military has a different MEANING than it does in the private sector.
