    Bleak Homecoming For Some GIs Back From Iraq

    For those reservists and National Guard members who have returned home to the U.S., USA Today reports that those who have "been reassigned, lost benefits or been fired from civilian jobs after returning from duty has increased by about 30 percent since 2002."

    The increase "reflects the extensive use of part-time troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, the largest call-up of reserves since the 1950-53 Korean War," writes the paper. Lt. Col. Marc Garcia, who has been deployed twice since Sept. 11, 2001 � to Afghanistan and in the U.S. � told the paper that "After the 1991 Gulf War, 'I was welcomed home with ticker tape. This time, I get the door slammed in my face.'"
