Did you see the post where I thanked her for the info? If walgreens had given it to me there wouldn't have been a problem. I don't have a sense of entitlement. I know there are other places to get it filled. Why don't you take your preaching home to your wife who obviously has to listen to your overbearing self richous whine every day of her poor life.
I respect our troops for what they do. But this new generation of military feel like they should be handed everything when they come back. Most of my family are military and don't act like this. Most who complain about small issues like this were never in a real war like situation, just overseas to hear the shots and explosions from a distance, then claim to be war vets. It's the government, not Walgreens. Go to the VA, that what it's there for. The government treats military, police, ems and fire just like everyone else, most of the time getting the short end of the stick. But don't go out here acting like the world owes you everything you want, your way. You are just like the next person, no better and no worse. People who act like you make our military look bad by running their mouths like this.

Walgreens not honoring the insurance has nothing to do with the company not supporting the troops. the government, just like any busniess, has a insurance company. just like every insurance policy there is some places that accept the insurance and some do not. this is all based on the contract with the insurance and the providers. i used to work in insurance so i know how this works. they will still fill the script but not give you the discount that an in network provider will give you. you need to read your insurance policy or call them to find network providers that will give the contracted discount.

28 years 7 tours to middle east, bosnia and a few more i don't care to mention. Combat zone for all. 30% disabled. What have you done for your country? Have you even thought about our troops overseas this year? Have you sent them a package, wrote your senator on your opinion whats going on. I would guess you have not?

I'll tell you what I do, I work every damned day of my life, and have since I was 16. I vote in every election, and have since I was 18. I also paid my own way through college, no GI bill for me. Pay for health insurance for me and my family, no free government insurance for us. I also never received free housing or a low interest GI loan when I bought my house. It's a big sacrifice when someone voluntarily joins the military to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. But it's also a job and there are lots benefits that go with the job that other Americans don't have. So you have to weigh one against the other and decide if it's what's right for you and your family and then you have to stop acting like everyone who didn't serve is beneath you.

I volunteered and am proud to serve. Never act like anyone is below me. The question was What have you done for your country this year? Not what you have done for yourself?

Whatever, I said I'd worked everyday since I was 16. I guess it's hard to read with comprehension when you have tears in your eyes from crying about all the government hasn't done for you.

You can say you volunteered to serve your country but in reality you did it for yourself. For job training or to pay your way through college,most likely. So while you were fulfilling your destiny as a soldier, the rest of us were here, paying taxes and supporting the economy, voting and keeping the home fires burning so you could come back to your GI entitlements. So please, we chose what we did for ourselves and our families.....as much as you chose to do what you did for yourself. Don't get all sanctimonious because you (chose) to serve.

An intelligent conversation consists of telling what others have done or their country? You are brain washed. You really do think you're better than those who have not served. Gang member have served in the military to go back and train other members. I guess they are better than others too?

If you could comprehend: military service isn't the only definition of what someone has done for their country. There are many in this country who support the economy, volunteer with children, the elderly, churches & the Red Cross. They work and pay taxes as police officers, doctors, nurses, legal aid lawyers, teachers and bus drivers. They educate themselves to try and vote for the most qualified candidates to represent us. They obey laws and serve on jury duty. We all have a little piece of the puzzle that is life as we know it in these United States and just because we aren't military does not mean we didn't work and contribute to the common good of this country. Everyone that doesn't share your viewpoint isn't wrong and you saying things like, "this conversation is over" just shows how narrow minded you are.

You laugh but there's documentation to back it up. Your response further shows how blind you are. Also shows that you do believe the military is above others. People like you are the reason others lose respect for our military. Always the worthless ones who make it harder for the ones who have earned it.

This isn't about military service. This is about someone smearing a company with half assed facts and running her mouth and unfairly bashing a business.

Veterans are not exceptions to the rules. Giving a vet a break is one thing but that's not the case here. Everyone will give a vet a break if they can and many people do and should.

But for someone to start accusing a company of not supporting the troops because they expect to be an exception to the rules is just plain irresponsible.

For people who support the troops, and would genuinely be offended at a company or business that did not, this half baked rant is taking advantage of our good will.

Walgreens does support our troops. They hire our Military. They have sent hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of personal supplies overseas to our troops.

Walgreen's doesn't accept my plan either. I can go to Wal-Mart or Rite-Aid. I think it's more of a contractural issue than Walgreens not supporting our troops. Don't mislead people.
O come on! The military is the reason they have choices in the first place-they take welfare n medicaid don't they? & I'm sure they fill the prescriptions for the illegals!!
