Why is it that a Veteran who needs eyeglasses and dentures is denied these by the VA yet lllegal.aliens get whatever they need. Are we now putting illegals ahead of Veterans?
I am sorry to hear that for any Veteran who served their time. It is a tragedy to be sure.

Should we start looking at them as individuals rather than as a group? Or do we give the bad ones a free pass because they fought in war? If we...

Should veterans lose government assistance after committing certain crimes?I understand respecting those who fight for our country, but should a veteran rapist really get free health care?
