Its now wonder they think of Vets as crazed psycho's. If you let those employees go without a paycheck they think they deserved for several years, those employees would be crazed psycho's also.

As Berta said, if you dont have PTSD before you start dealing with VA, you will after you deal with them a few years.

A friend of mine knows a foreigner, a minority female who got a loan from SBA, who barely speaks English. These minority foreigners get treated way better than our Veterans.

Much like the new voter registration laws in some states, this a solution looking for a problem. There are no supporting statistics showing veterans are any more violent that their non-veteran peers except when it comes to suicide--where, unfortunately, veterans excel. The whole concept is a sexist as it comes.

If you follow the hypertext links in Berta's post you will finally reach a Power Point presentation created for or by a Lynn M. Van Male, PhD who describes herself as the Director, Workplace Violence Prevention Program (10P3D).

This is exactly where VA resources are squandered.

The first step in marginalizing a group of people is to label them with some trait that makes them undesirable in some way. Here the VA is labeling veterans as "violent." Once you have them labeled as somehow inferior to the rest of society, you can ignore, discriminate and just generally mistreat members of that group with impunity. Those of us from the Vietnam era remember quite clearly being labeled as "drug crazed" indiscriminate killers.

This is attributed to the unwritten government policy of if they don't use all of their funds, they will not get as much for next years budget. I think the money would be better allocated by cancelling those useless programs and reallocating the funds to us Veterans.
