Recruiting former troops to a new fight, the Homeland Security Department swore in its inaugural class of military veterans Friday to be special operatives trained to track down child pornographers and sex abusers.
Social Security recipients shouldn't expect a big increase in monthly benefits come January.
Mr. Blau said that rather than being a tough job after the trauma of war, the veterans are uniquely positioned to handle what can be a trying job, given the material they come across.
"I served my country for four years trying to protect our freedom, and now I want to do it again protecting children's freedom," David Blau, one of the inaugural class of 17, told The Washington Times, saying he had no doubt he wanted to take part once he found out about the program and saw the kinds of predators out there.
