I haven't seen a job application that did not have this question, along with the latino and ethnic questions, and the "are you disabled" question. Not all the jobs have been in support of government contracts, but the companies may have had them.

Me either. I was never protected from anything. I protect myself and my family with an AR-15 and a Glock 19X

A Protected Veteran is a service member that is taken (drafted or activated) away from their job for service duties who must be returned to that job, or its equivalent if that job has been eliminated, upon a return from active duty. Generally, this would apply to any service member that is called away from their job and applies to all employment sectors, public and private.. So, there is a legal obligation for your employer to take you back when you return. From what I hear, enforcement has been spotty and problematic.

A protected veteran is a draftee, Guardsman or Reservist who has been called to active duty. Things like his job and seniority status are protcted.
