  • Reflections on My Bible

    Recently a friend of mine and her husband drove to New Hampshire to purchase a summer home. Sunday came and, as they had seen an Anglican church close by, they decided to attend.

    To answer questions from many of you about Walmart's hiring of veterans, I describe this move as both masterful public relations and a sincere gracious decision.

The nation's largest retailer expects to ultimately hire more than 100,000 veterans within five years, mostly for jobs at its stores and distribution centers. The head of Walmart's military program has stipulated however, that the company might only be able to hire some veterans part time.
