While most employers are understanding, some - particularly smaller firms - find it hard to cover for troops on long deployments and so are reluctant to take them on, he says.

Yep. I think everybody accepts that it's one of the liabilities. It's very difficult to prove that you weren't hired as a result of your military service (even though it's illegal) unless they're particularly stupid about it, and, really, you can't blame a small business owner for discriminating on that basis.

Sergeant 1st Class Thomas Morton, from Richmond, Virginia, came home to his wife and five children in January after almost 15 months away.

Since his return from Iraq, the 35-year-old has gone back to his regular job loading trucks.
Really, after 6 months of installing printer drivers and showing staff officers what the 'any key' was. SSgt Polar returned to his rather more important job than a hill billy yank had. Although he doesn't now have a wife because of the period of separation and her not coping with so many kids.

Although I'd agree in a few years time the difference will be minimal

I can't believe this. After all, how many kids could she have had in the 6 months while you were away? It's not as if you were captured at Dunkirk. ;)
