    Not that I want or desire to take away the pain any individual veteran feels or want to belittle how tough life can be, but come on... lots of people are fucked up before they enter the military and many come out alright.

    I know vets who were injured (take Sen. Max CLeland...who conservatives and the GOP trashed during the 20004 Presidential campaign) and who have suffered effects directly related to service injuries...and I believe in post traumatic syndromes, but how many people are abusing the stystem? methinks lots.

    We already went over this and REAL live Veterans told you it happened. By the way? Cleland blew himself up by picking up a live grenade.
