NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Phillip Slaughter left the Army after 18 years and found a job similar to the one he had in uniform: behind the wheel of a truck. Instead of hauling food and bullets through war zones, he hauled packages for FedEx.
It wasn’t what he wanted to do. The job aggravated her post-traumatic stress disorder. It would be three years and multiple jobs before he landed his dream job as a sourcing recruiter for a technology company.
