Navy Issues Lists Of Upcoming Layoffs

I served in the Army, dearie, because I believe it is everyone's responsibility to serve our country in whatever way possible. I served honorably and morally. So, I'll pass on the Navy job offer.
I'm suggesting the Navy should not "fire" people who are in mid-career. It seems as if it would make sense to retain seasoned "employees" and to re-train them for some needed job classification. This, instead of ejecting them at the same time the company is busy recruiting new people. Private Industry wouldn't get away with that - or is that OK now?

Navy Issues Lists Of Upcoming Layoffs

Nice Captain Smith makes it all sound so neat, clean and organized. Almost like a good idea. If it's your family member who just lost their job, housing and health insurance, well how about that? What about that, eh matey? how about some of that wonderful "outplacement" crap for yourself?
What other organization could get away with screwing over so many mid-career people while still hiring new trainees? Lemme see, fire a bunch of fully trained and experienced personnel and hire a whole pack of newbies. No wonder the military is the way it is. Look at the fools running it... So convenient they are not bothered by a sense of right vs. wrong.
MID CAREER, you dolts! that means these people had planned to make a career of the Navy. That's some kind of gratitude for their service.
