22,000 Men And Women Purged From The Military After Serving In The War On Terror. PRESS HERE FOR DETAILS 22,000 Men And Women Purged From The Military After Serving In War

This secondary Surge is a total dishonor and disgrace to not only all veterans, but also all Americans. How could the federal government send these men and women to up to three and four tours in the combat zones, and then these honorable and brave Americans return to America for help; they are purged by the Department of Defense.

This type of treatment to America's PTSD veterans has been an on-going disgrace of President George Bush.

Learn the disgusting deeds of his Veterans' Disability Benefits Commission SENATE GRANTS SOCIAL SECURITY TO ILLEGAL ALIENS.

I can't in my mind believe anybody would vote no to this,if these people are indeed being refused treatment and payment then it's a total disgrace that must be investigated.

No matter ones view on any combat zone our troops are deployed to one should commend their sacrifice and hold up to the just rewards they deserve.

In my mind active duty or retired,any person sent to combat should recieve health care FOR LIFE,at the governments expense.Any one who puts in 20 years even if never in combat same deal.

This is where government under our constitution actually has authority at the federal level,to maintain a standing army in defense of this nation and no matter policy of the war be it Afghanistan,Somalia,Iraq,Vietnam,Korea,WW2,Panama or where ever,these people answered the call and should not be shunned.

A promise is a promise.There is alot of wasteful government spending to be reigned in but this topic,these people are not it.

This administrations attitude toward Veterans is simple.

F** 'em all. They are no longer of any use to us, so F*** 'en all.

BTW - this is not so different that any other administration or country for that matter. It is just a lot more blatant. I mean; What do we expect - honorable behavior from dishonorable men?

Default UPDATE: 'Marlboro Man' in Fallujah became a symbol of the Iraq conflict.

The photo of the 'Marlboro Man' in Fallujah became a symbol of the Iraq conflict.

This Marine's eyes tell the story. He already had the scare when his famous picture was taken.

I said yes. Not yes, if Bush don't do it, somebody should.

I don't want Bush or his administration investigating it. I want a totally independent agency to look into it. Be too easy for it to be covered up.
