OPINION
_________________________

JANE B. STRANCH, Circuit Judge. Kenneth Savage worked as an aviation mechanic for FedEx, while simultaneously serving as a lieutenant in the United States Naval Reserve. He was terminated by FedEx for violating its reduced-rate shipping policy and acceptable conduct policy. Savage brought claims against Federal Express Corporation d/b/a FedEx Express, FedEx Corporation Employees’ Pension Plan, and FedEx Corporation Retirement Savings Plan (collectively “FedEx”) for discrimination, retaliation, and improper benefit calculations under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), 38 U.S.C. § 431 et seq. The district court granted summary judgment to the defendants. For the following reasons, we AFFIRM in part and REVERSE in part the judgment of the district court.
