I disagree. The Veterans’ Employment and Training Service of the Labor Department referred the serviceman’s complaint to the Justice Department upon completion of its investigation. Investigation.

But it appears that the investigation proved otherwise. If there were other circumstances involved, I'm sure they would have been discovered and the proper merit assigned to the validity of such. Regardless, it seems such an argument had no bearing on the outcome.
Mountain out of a mole hill? Naw. I care very little about any quality product when there are other products out there that meet or exceed it.
And those are the companies that get my dollars; Not the companies who are morally complacent and disregard the rights assigned to our servicemen and women by law.

Damn! I just bought a SOG knife yesterday at the gun show in Las Vegas. Had I known, I would have held off. Its a nice knife. but I could have done without, and found something else. I do hope that this turns out to be a personnel issue with the individual, and not their policy on returning vets.

Politics NOT Aside. What, did they sell out to the French...? lol...

Sorry its not politics. Its ethics. Pure and simple. They made an unethical decision and didnt make it right till they were faced with Criminal charges then they did what they should have done. Hell they talk about being there for the military, sell to the military but put money before doing what was right. Hell the last time I was mobilized, I lost half my salary. Over 40K for one year. Yes they make great products, but I do not support unethical people or companies.

Oh...so we have to wait until their team of lawyers concocts a double speak official statement?
How about the president of the company just growing a set of orbs & offering a quick public apology. That sure would do it for me.
Sorry but, they can temper their blades where the sun don't shine until some person of authority at SOG clears this up.
Just my opinion that if it's really nothng...then it should be quite quick and easy to clear up the misunderstanding.
How am I wrong about that?
