A man serves in the U.S. military and this is what the Immigration system does to him?

Sounds like he's milking the system!
On a recent morning, Chaudhry sits quietly in his wheelchair in his west Yakima home. His wife hands him a napkin filled with pills he takes to tolerate the pain that shoots from his ***broken back.*** He rarely leaves his home.
He arrived in the U.S. on a tourist visa in 1998 and planned a life in the ***U.S. military when he joined in March 2001.*** A month later his application for permanent residency was approved. But a series of ***back injuries*** he sustained during training exercises that required him to repeatedly sprint and drop to the ground while toting a rifle and pack at Fort Lewis eventually confined his life to a wheelchair.***He was honorably discharged in May 2006.***

This is how people get repaid; who put their lives on line for America?
What people all over the globe will learn from this?
Is this the message the Pentagon want to send to 21000 legal permanent residents serving in the American military right now? or to the perspective future service men & women ?
Is this how we show the whole World, how racist and bigots we are ?
This news has the potential to spread like wild fire. We should learn from our even our recent history. Remember race riots all over the country?
Billions of dollars of damage to the property alone. Damage to our reputation ? Priceless perhaps ?
It can have far reaching consequences like foreign investment in US, which we really need right now!

First off your not! If he committed the same crimes here they would be considered felonies (Identity theft/forgery and theft 2nd for the credit card). I applaud him for his service and hope he can continue to stay here if he is genuine. Just because one serves in the military does not make them a great American (Lee Harvey Oswald & Charles Whitman were both Marines prior to going nuts)
