you are right not only does the veteran suffer but his whole family suffers also--they need a hand up and to never be treated like they were trash again--I was a teenager when the Vuet Nam Vets came home--my heart brocke for them. I have been married to a disabled viet nam vet for 38 years now--He still has nightares, nightsweats, TIAs (mini strokes) 3 heart attacks, prostate cancer 7 out of 12. Thats nly a start of what has gone wrong these past 40 tears since NAM Tricia and Henry
