The article presents a case of a misplaced parenthesis that has severely affected the five-year rule enclosed within the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) in the U.S. It cites the difference between the 10 United States Code (USC) 688(a) and the 10 USC 688a on the eligibility of a reserve officer for reemployment. It also emphasizes the significance to make necessary determinations that will be applicable when a reserve officer leaves his duty.
