I think we need to do a lot more for our vets, but the above posters are right--these rules have been place a long time. It's what we're living with now. I think they need to be changed, but you can't be suprised when the rules work the way they're spelled out to work.

It was the same treatment I recieved when I exited the military after Desert Storm. I knew that going in and coming out.

Again, there are ligit points to be made here. the one you have locked on is the wrong one.
Incorrect. Illegals get free care in our hospitals & all sorts of benefits.

I reread the article, and it says it's going to take 8 months to get his disability claims adjudicated. Sounds like he left because he's disabled (PTSD or physical?). It's not clear whether he was forced out or if he quit.
