HALF of them REFUSE to work! I know one that served 9 months. Sat back and collected 3 YEARS of unemployment while NOT looking for a job. Was in and out of jail, on drugs and a general piece of garbage! Now he is still not working and milking GI bill benefits to get 'training' for a job he will never get. And I know many other vets doing the same things!!!!

It's hard to have sympathy for any vet who uses PTSD as an excuse to beat his wife, steal, do jail time and just be a worthless human being.
