FORT MYERS, Fla. — Richard Erickson was terminated from the Fort Myers post office nearly 20 years ago for excessive military leave, but as of today he finally has his job back.
A former sergeant major in the National Guard and single father to three girls has called on lawyers and activists to fight for his rights.
“I was called out by the president of the United States to protect my country, but they didn’t protect me,” said Richard Erickson.
After years of lawsuits and a long-overdue breakthrough, a judge ordered the Fort Myers post office to give Erickson his job back.
