is this how we welcome back our troops? TYRANT CAPTOR IN A HOLE
this poor kid was one of the ones who found saddam. he's back home now, away from the war. he cannot find a job. are you surprised? i'm not
August 22, 2005 -- Jeans Cruz never thought he would have a tough time finding a job with a résumé like his: computer training, nursing skills, military experience — and capturing Saddam Hussein.
The 24-year-old Bronx man was among the unit of Army soldiers who in late 2003 hauled the fallen Iraq dictator from the tiny rat hole he cowered in after the U.S. invasion.
Now Cruz has been dis charged from the Army, and civilian life has been hard. The husband, father and war hero can't seem to find employment.
"I'm trying to get a job. I have a lot of things to put on my résumé," he told The Post last week. "I thought it would be pretty easy, with my background, but it hasn't."
The retired Army specialist was one of the soldiers of G Troop, 10th Cavalry, a reconnaissance unit of the 4th Infantry Division, which spent days staking out a small farm believed to be Saddam's hideout. ...............
