I'm not a Vet but, have fought the Criminal Child support services for 15 years. I paid my child support. When Custody of one of my kids was returned to me I received notice that My child support had been increased. Our justice system Sucks Our Government Sucks. God bless America But the bastards running this corrupt system should be Hanged

ERR! This has to stop! ASAP! I have many friends who are vets and this is not an uncommon issue at all. In fact it, common place! Men are definitely treated unfairly by the courts...there's this presumption that we are not fit to raise a child!! But we are fit enough to risk our lives to protect the citizens of this country? HA! I am so sorry for all vets who've faced this in their lives. I'm not sad, I'm pissed off!

Terrence is a decorated combat veteran who was fit enough to defend your freedoms but not fit enough to be a father, according to the corrupt family court system.

BTW shooting insurgents in Iraq or killing Vietcong is not really the same as raising a child, so being fit for one has nothing at all to do with being fit for the other. Unless you are a serial killer.lol

You are the same lunatic who keeps talking about slicing throats ect..
You really need help buddy and I hope for their sake you have no kids. You make real fathers and stable vets look bad.

What does being a vet have to do with being a good father? I think this Terrence Popp guy is probably a failure as a father and is looking for sympathy or someone else to blame. His preceived accomplishments in one endever does not equate to being a good father.
My guess is that his father abandon him just like he abandon his children and did not accept responsibility either. The cycle of irresponsibility continues and the "corrupt" court system is blamed. It's too bad upstanding citizens must foot the bill for the court system required to deal with Mr. Popps personal issues.

Spending someone else's money doesn't make anyone a good parent, either. In fact - isn't that welfare?

I wish all you Vets would stop complaining I am also a vet. I did not leave my wife after the war, sure we had problems but we were adult enough to work through them. A father who leaves his children is less than a man. But to leave your children and then blame the courts for your problems is the height of irresponsibility! Sounds like the courts made the right decision. I would have also given the children to the most responsible party. You are an embarrasment to all men in uniform. Stop hiding behind being a poor "vet". We don't need to be associated with someone who thinks with their little head then won't stand up to help a child.
Please change the name of your group to "Fathers who don't give a damn about their children and blame the world".

My brother in law left my sister and also blamed his problems on PTSD. Oh he's well enough to go party with his friend, march at protests, and write letters bitching about fathers rights, but he's not well enough to pay child support. Does the military hold classes on how to avoid responsibility as a civilian? I'd like to thank all the vets that don't leave their families, work hard, and not blame all their pronlems on PTSD.
By the way real funny video. How about spending your time earning some money to buy your kids food instead or making movies.

W
ell shot video however misses the point. Regardless of if one thinks of himself as a "hero" he still needs to support his children. I do not understand the concept that a soldier should be exempt from paying child support. I served in Vietnam 68-69 and have always met my obligations as a father, I don't see why others should not. Individuals with mental problems need help but if they are earning a living they should still be required to pay for their children.
Mr. Popp, your misrepresentation of the average soldier is at best a lie. Painting other soldiers with the mental aflection you have does no good. The military provides many services including mental health evaluation. Please use the resources available and refrain from including the rest of us veterans in your plea for help.
I wish you luck.

I'll bet ya $100 that his father abandon him just like he abandon his kids. Then complains that the courts want him to spend to much money. Mr. Popp complaints that the courts take 40% of his wages for child support. Well I'm married, live with my family, have not abandon my children and spend 50% of my income on my children.
Why don't I complain? Because I love my children, they deserve a good start in life and I'm a responsiable parent. I can only imagine how Mr. Popp's children will feel when they see he publicly denounces supporting his children. God bless these children and their mother!

To the person of this post, have you googled terrence popp? He spoke at the white house on this subject. He obviously loves his children and for you to make such comments is very wrong. I am calling you coward. Mr popp has linkind the suicide issue that is crippiling our military to the one sides and unfair treatment of service men at the hands of the court. A man who gets on his feet when injustice is prevalent is not looking for a free ride. In fact any man who dares to stand up is punished even more. you one sided, obtuse, stinking coward.

so its ok for the court to take 40 to 60 percent of the mans income? in todays times that is unfair and is wrong. this is not the 1960's women out number men in graduating from college and earn just as much as men. the laws need and upgrade and joint physical custody needs to be the first option. the conflict that results from the normal option is not good for anyone. I spoke with Mr pop in DC, and his passion for this is unwavering and for his children. Do you have any idea on how much static he took for running his non profit while being in the army? no matter what your opinion is logic must prevail. The system in family court is corrupt and is pervasive with discrimination.

supporting children is not the option. 90% of homless are men and 40 to 45% are vererans. a large portion of them went threw a divorce and had lost everything under the guise support there children and best interest of the child. in many cases the first stint in jail for this civil debt threw them into an unrecoverable spiral. after 30 to 90 days in jail you have no home, car or job. then if you get a job and they take 60% of your income how do you live? At 30 K a year and the removal of taxes you make less then the poverty line. it needs to be fixed it is unfair.

When Mr. Popp comments about himself he speaks in third person, I think he is delusional? Strange when Mr. Popp states "I spoke with Mr. Popp" I think that says it all. Why can't the VA house guys like this. Sad.

Do you really? Can you give us some idea of what income bracket you're in? If you're making over $100,000 a year, that's being pretty generous. In fact, you probably ought to be saving a lot more instead of going for consumptive spending. On the other hand, if you make less than $30,000 per year, tough to see how your kids (even if you only have one) are getting by.

Supposing you hit a rough spot like an unexpected major expense. Do you keep spending exactly the same amount on the children? Or do you use sound financial judgment and cut back to essentials? Do you base your spending on actual needs or just set an arbitrary amount and find something to spend it on? Would you want government telling you exactly how much you had to spend? Would you keep rewarding your children beyond their basic needs regardless of their behavior?

While the words sound similar, there is a big difference between doing your share (both parents are responsible) to support your children and paying another party a mandated unrestricted sum that government bureaucrats brazenly mislabel as "child support".

As the women's groups keep pointing out, its the woman's "right to choose". And that's how the law reads, too. If you decide - you support.
