I hear too much about veterans. They get all kinds of crap for nothing. Most veterans did nothing unusual and deserve nothing. Please...can we just move on.

Ah yes! veterans. A branch of Generation Entitlement.

Providing aid to genuine combat veterans is one thing. But a large majority of American veterans have never seen combat and got most of their injuries sustaining paper cuts or falling off the bar stool at the club.

I for one have zero problems gutting the Department of Veterans Affairs, CalVets, and other giveme programs for non-combat veterans. If the government stopped offering the tit for non-combat military veterans, there would be plenty of money to treat genuine wounded warriors

And yes, I served - Army for two years - 1967 to 1969, manning a guard tower on the 39th Parallel in South Korea. I do NOT deserve a dime for those times since I never experienced a moment of combat.

But in two years you never lost a guard tower to the NKA! I'm very impressed. So tell us, what VA benefits have you used over the years?

Why is it that scores of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines are returning from the Near East with their limbs blown off by land mines or other forms of improvised explosive devices or, many have had their faces or genitalia blown off by the same form of explosive devices but the U.S. Government states that they don't have the money to completely heal these individuals so, the warriors are forced to resort to charities such as the Wounded Warrior just to get prosthetic devices or plastic surgery?
