The NY Times is doing a story on brokers called up for active duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, the impact on their families, and the problems caused by the loss of their brokerage jobs.  If anyone has any stories or would like to offer some insights, please contact:

Here's the original thread we all worked on a few months back that got this issue before the public:

Check out what this young investment banker at one of my favorite firms, Bear Stearns, did:

Bear fully supports what this young man is doing and didn't have any issues with him or his family speaking to the press. Getting an investment bankers' position at a firm such as BSC, LEH, or JEF is very competitive. Hopefully what this young man has done and is doing will inspire a little "courage" in others who read this thread to consider exercising their First Amendment Rights once in a while.
