    WalMart pledged to increase purchases of US goods by $50 billion over the next 10 years. That's a good thing!

    WalMart will not be nominated for "employer of the year" anytime soon and certainly they are doing this in part to deflect bad PR over the last 6 months. Really though, would we be better off had WalMart not made this offer? I think that there are unemployed veterans and soon to be discharged veterans that would be happy to take advantage of this offer. I would look at a WalMart job as something to get me through until i could find a better job.

    A little something is better than a lot of nothing.
