Ms. Duren,

Thank you for the blog entry.  

We encourage you to continue to apply for the positions that you feel you qualify for, and to ensure the record is clear: veteran's preference is the only hiring preference allowed in federal hiring law.

But if you have 15 years as a civil servant (tenure), you are eligible for reinstatement. It is important to note that reinstatement eligibility is not a guarantee for a job.  

Please visit this USAJOBS information page for all the details you'll need:  

I hope this is helpful.
