Over the past decade, we have seen the largest military deployment since World War II. Our troops are now withdrawn from Iraq, and thousands more are scheduled to return from Afghanistan over the course of 2013. By the end of 2014, nearly 1.5 million veterans will have returned from combat operations in those two countries alone. Many will apply for reemployment with physical or mental impairments that potentially trigger a host of statutory obligations, ranging from the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) to the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA).
