    It's sad to hear things like this. Shame on th politicians who say they support the troops. If they did how does this happen?

    yeah that is fucking horrible. these are the ones who are fighting for them fat ass cats to sit there and cut mil. spending and bennies for the current vets and out of the mil vets.
    but on the other hand, the VA offers programs for displaced vets. all the need to do is visit a va office to learn about them. i didnt know about any of the either until i started looking.

    still, it is horrible though

    God I hate it when they call a war a conflict , now the VFW and American legion will tell them you fought in a conflict not a war , thats what they told me about vietnam it was a police action , guys were killed its a war .

    lot of homeless vets . bad medical care , you out now fend for your self .
    people wave flags and say I support the troops , but not after their service is done . thats not support to me .

    I hope veterans groups fined them and help them .

    They've served their purpose. The elites no longer have any use for them.

    Humans are but a resource to bought, sold, manipulated, invested, and spent like any other.

    That's Capitalism, kids.

    Why did you think corporations have a 'Department of Human Resources'?

    Why do you think some Veterans are homeless? Because politicians don't care? That's the lazy and ignorant answer. In some inner city areas the unemployment rate is over 20%. Did the stimulous help? Veterans are given medical and psychological care and the "G.I." bill pays for education. Is it the responsibility of "politicians" to make sure veterans can get a job when nobody else is employed?
