The oft-repeated statement that American service men are entitled to more rights and privileges than their counterparts in any other nation was further bolstered last week by an Office of War Information release.
1. "A service man's civil liabilities, such as income tax and insurance premium payments, are suspended and remain suspended until six months after the war. Free legal advice is available to him."
2. "He is eligible for unemployment compensation in 44 states and Hawaii in the event he is unable to find employment on being discharged from the service."
3. "His former employer is required by law to reinstate him to his job and seniority rights upon discharge from the service. He will be given civil preference in seeking employment with the national government."
4. "His concern over the health, and other assistance and service which may be required by his wife, his children, his parents, or his sisters, brothers and grandchildren is alleviated through systems of insurance, allotments and allowances, quarter allowance and maternity infant care."
5. "He may receive free medical and hospital care after the war. If wounded or injured, he may be eligible for veterans' pensions commensurate with his degree of disability and to vocational rehabilitation and placement in employment."
