I don't know HTF! "I" fall into that category?

I've tried to get something in writing and they won't give it to me. I've left message w/ CA Division of Labor Standards for my region. I haven't spoke to a lawyer yet, I don't have the money right now for that. I'm going in tomorrow to return all of my issued gear and will try again to get something in writing. I think realizing they said VA appointments, they changed their tune. But, my performance was outstanding and I kept copies of all my evals. The other guy they hired was a former employee who'd left for another job, but came back. His salary is a bit less then mine (I was fully certified thru the Navy for the course I taught, he is not yet). My former co-workers couldn't believe they let me go, and in fact they cancelled VA appointments themselves!! Thanks for the help everyone.
Former Team guy? Dude somethings weird here...

If you are servie connected with disabilities look at the Americans With Disabilities Act and contact your local EEO office. You have recourse. If you are less than 100% service connected file a claim with the VA for unemployabilitybased on your service connected conditions. (Yes I work for the VA, sorry) PM me for more information
