Politicians (both parties) claim they "support troups" but first cuts in budget are always to military. Then troops hear while serving that their own politicians are calling them "equivalent to Pol Pot" etc. When they separate/discharge they can't find jobs because of the evilness a senator has described them to be and is believed by a employer or fellow citizen. Then when veteran jobless rates skyrocket, same politician will hold hearings on why they can't get a ob. Will the employers say why? No, because same senator controls federal funds that employer may receive so we dance around answer. Then all involved pledge support and assistance...which then never gets put into budget or is cut during sequester. Retirees/other vets try to support and help, but the new military does not want us around base, galleys or VA "infecting" the new troops with our old knowledge and wisdom. This story, with a different name, ufortunately and sadly happens daily around US. Don't care which party you trust, keep voting as you do, and these stories will continue.
