VETS UNDEREDUCATED

The majority of vets have at least a two-year degree. Those without a degree are working on one. This is not the same fighting force of the '70s and '80s. If you are not a vet, you are in no position to presume why vets are homeless and hungry. Our young men and women coming home from combat zones are mentally and physically spent. Combat zones aren't just Iraq and Afghanistan ... Korea, Columbia, North Africa. Hats off to this Nation's military members, and to our vets who have returned home. Why do I understand? I am one. Believe me, I'd love to rehabilitate the naysayers. Shame on you! You who have enjoyed freedom 365 days every year of your lives while the military defends your rights

You are prove my point that vets are stupid. "Sexueal preditor" should be spelled "sexual predator." I guess they don't teach proper English spelling in the military. Let me guess, you stand on a street corner and sell pot for a living.

We baby-sit their asses while they're enlisted, so now we have to care for these morons for the rest of their lives too?
It's not my fault you were too stupid to get into a good college and had to join the military.
Judging by the rest of your posts you arent angered by any of this you are just a troll...you run through all the postings and spout random shit to see if it angers or hurts anyone.
You have no idea what its like to be in the military and no idea the trauma cause by war
You dont like vets who need help to get on with their lives? Then tell the government to stop sending our troops to places they dont belong and getting fucked up.

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have been dragging on for years and years, and returning vets are physically and mentally spent. Sadly, for some vets, their families and the government do not provide any support to help them get back on their feet, so they end up homeless.

Here is a good article about the current homeless problem among veterans and what the government is doing about it http://www.npr.org/2012/04/16/150578330/a-pus...

Since people in the army follow orders, vets oftentimes need to be told what to do. This makes them unnattractive to employers who are looking for citical thinkers that are capable of thinking on their feet and taking initiative. This one little disability is making it hard for vets to transition from military life to civilian life, and that is why we need to feed them.

No it is not because they are used to following orders it is because of the problems they come back with, ptsd was INVENTED because of them. The stress and emotional tyrany that they have to go through is worse than you and I could ever imagine. I have heard some horror stories from war vets. Watching their friends and coleeges get shot or blown up. Watching innocent children and families die for nothing. Maybe having to deal with a missing body part. The trama that they have to go through is unimaginible. so for you to sit here and think that they are incapable of thinking on their feet and are lazy you have it completely wrong. They have done the hardest job that anyone could ever do, and there is a reason there is a memorial day. Vets aren't lazy or stupid, they have been through more than you could ever think of putting yourself through.

Sadly enough as true as your words are there will be little or no respect for fellow vets from those who dont understand military life.
War is full of death and carnage that some will never forget and it will plague some for the rest of their lives.
People who make me laugh when they say vets should get a job cuz they are fine.
So heres a scenario for those people to think about;
You take a war torn combat vet who has spent the last 4 years watching carnage and bloodshed and people being blown apart or losing limbs....vets who suffer both physical and emotional trauma including PTSD and horrible nitemares combined with bouts of anger and rage;then combine that with military combat training....NOW would you want to hire them with even a slight chance of a violent episode?
Probably not and welcome to what I see all the time....before you disrespect a fellow vet for being lazy or worthless why dont you go volunteer to serve your country only to be pissed on by its government and then have ignorant asswipes give you flack when you cant adjust to every day life after killing people for 2-4 years
