    Montel Williams Ditches Soldier Who Wouldn't Complain About Treatment



    Clifton’s Frasier an example of the future, Montel says

    The United States might have to turn again to the Keli Frasiers of the nation to go to war, Montel Williams suggested Tuesday on “The Montel Williams Show.”

    Keli Frasier, meanwhile, sat in front of the television with her mother, Audrey Babbel, curled up beside her.

    “This is an example of America’s troops today,” Williams said, gesturing to Frasier, the 24-year-old Clifton mother who served 11 months in Iraq and returned home with her unit and appeared on the talk show to talk about her experiences in Iraq and back home.

    Frasier suffers anxiety attacks and bouts of unexplainable anger and has been diagnosed as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

    She has been unable to hold a job since returning, but did marry and has a son, 8-month-old Evan. Once Evan is ready for school, Frasier has said, she might consider returning to work or Mesa State College.

    Evan toddled and crawled along the floor as his mother was asked whether she wakes up in the middle of the night, sweating and remembering the three attacks she survived.

    For Frasier, the sharpest memories are of moments that never made the air from the show taped in New York.

    When she told Williams she was treated well by the Department of Veterans Affairs, he seemed to lose interest and moved quickly to another segment, she said.

    During a commercial break, though, he gestured to her and commented, “This soldier’s not going to complain,” Frasier said.

    She was whisked away to the airport and never spoke again to Williams, she said.

    “It was absolutely nothing like I expected it to be,” she said of the show. “He didn’t ask me any of the questions I was prepared for.”

    On the other hand, she said, “Maybe I was able to educate people about what soldiers go through when they come home.”

    Why do you hate Marine veteran talk-show hosts?

    Nothing to do with being lib or rep...not everything in this world is about that!!! It's sooooooooooo boring to hear the same excuse used (from both sides) about every damn thing that goes on!

    Bottom line is - if it bleeds it leads. The story becomes less interesting when there's no controversy. People don't like feel-good stories, they like to hear about people's pain and suffering...it's like that everywhere in the world so it's got nothing to do with party affiliation. Get out of your plastic bubble already.

    So far, elected Dems have compared troops to Nazis, Pol Pot, said the troops were now operating Saddam's torture chambers, called them terrorists and uneducated

    This is the type of support the troops can do without

    The liberal media is not interested in her story because it does not fit the liberal medias agenda
