Veteran's have a serious problem on their hand's, I hope today's veteran's keep fighting for their rights!

Because you know VA will do their best not to compensate these Veteran's!!!!

I have a feeling this is being floated alongside the Medicare/Social Security debate, where there's plenty of money for drones, bombers and carriers in Congressional districts but we're gonna have to tighten the belt on Grandma's prescription money.

Veterans should be in the front of the line when it comes to entitlements.

This is a result of these poor vets having to serve repeated tours of duty.

When you here them say 6 or even 7 tours of duty in a war zone.

It is going to get worse.

Memories are very short. The fact that more vets are claiming disabilites just makes for all the vets from previous wars who never filed. Probably every vet who was in combat in WWII and Korea could have filed for PTSD if the DX had existed at the time. Instead they just drank themselves to death and beat their wives and kids. Same for Korea and Vietnam before PTSD was recognized and treatment was offered.

Very true.........I spent some time last night on the phone with my BIL. He is getting some R&R before heading over to Afghanistan after 2nd tour in IRAQ.

He has changed so much over the last few years. He requested to go to Afghanistan to see if there was really a difference than that in Iraq, as he knew he would eventually go anyway upon re-enlistment, so this was his demand and it was granted along with 36K.

This is his life now, which is a complete 180 from his old life, which is a good thing as long as he doesn't get his ass shot off.......his MOS is pretty hairy.
