WELL, A VET NEEDS HELP WITH TRANSPORTATION GETTING TO PHYSICAL THERAPY. GOTTA ACT FAST. NOT LOOKING FOR A HANDOUT. SOME OF US HAVE PUT TOGETHER SOME CASH. I SUPPOSE ALL WE REALLY NEED IS A GOOD RELIABLE VAN NO OLDER THAN SAY 2006 unless it has fewer miles than average. Just a bare bones Chrysler minivan would do. We can put together a ramp.

We give $747 billion dollars to war contractors, but not a nickel to help a vet get to physical therapy. That's OK. We take care of our own.

Your incorrect spelling of "semper fi" compels be to question if you're for real.

Man alive, I have heard it all up until now. You want a semi handout, but gotta be at least a 2006? You disgrace both the veterans and especially the USMC. How much cash ya got? LOL. I have a slightly used Humvee with ladder racks and a b.s. detector built in the dashboard. Anyone low enough to post such a pile of horse shit needs a good kick in the buttocks.

mr moose! I don't know what I wrote that could have angered you in Amy manner. We have put together $12,000 and have agreed to spend $15,000 at the most. We just agree that we would be better off not getting anything older than a 2006 for reliability. And as far as a semi-handout, we aren't looking for a handout of any kind. Just help in locating a vehicle (and purchasing the damn thing) I guess we don't get any lower than that, eh?

We found one that we were going to pay exactly $15,000 for but after reading the reviews on the make and model, we backed off. Go to edmunds.com and read up on the reviews of a 2006 pontiac SV6. They're horrible .

I have a no backdown policy so if this letter doesn't satisfy you, I'll be happy to meet you somewhere and let you do some of that ass-whopping you're talking about. Otherwise, Merry Christmas.

Thanks so very much for your thoughtful response. Look at all the other responses on here. Tell me that the world isn't upside down. Not much has changed since the return of the Vietnam Nam Vets. Instead of offering a thoughtful response such as your own, he belittles a handful of combat vets just looking to pay for a van.

Did you see where Rush Limbaugh called the pope a Marxist yesterday for his comments regarding helping the poor?

And we fought and died for this kind kind of behavior.

Thanks again.

PS. I asked my daughter to put on the original post. According to one poster here, an eleven year old girl should know how to spell semper fi .... He questions the spelling, but offers no assistance.

I wonder what these two were doing while we were patrolling the streets of Baghdad ?

And lastly, for reference. our own Phil Roe is not only our obstructionist congressman, he is also on the veterans affairs committee. He voted against the ONLY " Aid to veterans bill" that would have set aside a lousy $1 billion for helping veterans returning from Iraq to find or train for jobs" THANKS !!!

I have been to the website, Kim? And guess what! It's busted. I assume it still is.

So let me see if I have this straight. A brand new website that Obama put together is supposed to work perfectly on the very first day when it's being bombarded with hundreds of thousands of hits. PEOPLE CANT GET INSURANCE. Yell the teabaggers. When 3 years ago they were yelling that PEOPLE SHOULDNT GET INSURANCE.

but here's a website for veterans that's busted and has been busted and is part of the reason we just need to buy a van.

Like my daughter said, we take care of our own. EVERYBODY COMES HOME.

HEY THANKS JOHNSON CITY FOR YOUR RELENTLESS AND CONTINUOUS APATHY TOWARDS VETERANS. This vet will be expected to get by on $28,200 per year, while the military contractor lobbyist that took Phil Roe to lunch last week makes right at 700 times that of a 32 year old who gave his left leg for your freedom.

Don't worry about your tax dollars though. He's likely not to make it too much longer. We really believe that he will end up taking his own life soon. He shot an unarmed Iraqi woman who was coming toward him shouting and she wouldn't stop coming even after he raised his rifle. He's not over it and he never will be. Neither will I.

Thanks again !

I have been following this thread and wonder why you guys don't save yourselves a lot of money and time by buying an older van and fixing it up? A lot of churches have just what you need, especially dependable diesels that go forever. I don't think you would have to spend $15000 to do that. Surely you guys should have enough combined experience between you to do that, unless you are just making this whole thing up and hoping to pull at the heartstrings of kind hearted readers. I sincerely hope that is not the case. Why do you drag politics into it? I don't know what you would have to gain from that other than someone selling you a van for much less than it is worth out of sympathy. I'm sorry if I seem skeptical but too many people pull stunts like that.
I don't see why you have to drag politics into this discussion.

He called about a chevy astro for $7999.,,, way too many miles. Like I said, we don't want to brak down wi an invalid in the van.

Gee whiz mister,
I didn't mean to set you off, sport. I was just trying to say that your story could be bogus and suggested a better plan. I can see now that you are unstable. You might consider having the V.A. docs have a peak inside your head while you are at it.

Gee whiz desi. You're just about the average dumbass in the area. This is the original post, you idiot. How could ANYTHING be bogus about it. We have cash and we want to buy a van. How is that bogus? Now crawl back into stupid.

Thanks for nothing, you worthless REICHT winged losers. We weren't asking for a damn thing. We are going to Mr Uptons in the morning and we will get our brother to his appointments and if the van is suitable, we will be happy to pay him cash for it.

But do me a favor. The next time your Crawford Cowboy wants to start one of Those PRO-LIFE wars over in Iraq, go yourself, will ya..??

And I've had my head examined, thank you. The shrink says IM PISSED OFF. And it's people like you that piss me off. Hell, I liked the Iraqis better than the teabaggers. But, we had to kill 100,000 of them .....IRAQI FREEDOM.

Sgt, start here. Come back to this post if the van they Mr Uptons van thing doesn't work out. We have you covered 100% at least getting him to the first few apps while you guys get a van.

I'm in complete agreement with Bill Upton. Don't expect ANY empathy from the trash that loves in Upper East Tennessee. Stay within the brotherhood. I know Upton and he knows me. I'll call him in the morning and we can get at least get to know each other during his appt. we have lots of get togethers and resources.

How long have you been out ?

Sgt, you are a bit late with your posts. Thanksgiving is over and you are still as full of shit as the turkey that didn't get butchered. I don't know what your trip is, but nobody is falling for your line of b.s. Why don't you just admit, you are a big fake, probably never even been in the military and are using that as a way to either score a van or to get attention . I see these fake old drunks every day, sitting on a corner with a sign saying "Homeless Vet, gimme something" and they have never even been in ROTC. As for your invitation for an "Ass whopping"..........your spelling, not mine......I won't even go there. I seriously think you have been watching to much tv or playing too many video games. But I gotta ask, who is the van going to be titled to? What was your unit, where did you do your basic, your AIT....let's ee your DD214? You see, chump, I'm a real vet and can't stand an idiot like you faking his way.

I got a better IDea, moose. Let's see your credentials, because I think you're the one full of shit. I know all the circles and you aren't one of US. You're the one full of shit and we got the dude a van. And, like he said in his first post and every post thereafter, he's paying cash dollars for the damn thing. How does that come anywhere close to someone holding a "Homeless Vet" sign.

And , if you were a vet, you'd know that many of those are true.

If you were even in the services, and I doubt that you were, I can guarantee that you never saw combat.

I think you're a coward.

Well Sgt. Lenny, I think you have established that Sgt and Lenny are one in the same. Add a split personality disorder to your credentials. Now that you have gotten the dude a van (yeah, right) then the subject is moot.
