Why are older combat veterans not getting the same benefits, support, and attention as current vets?


I have been to three combat theaters during my active duty career and an additional two tours as a member of the national guard. I find it insulting as a combat veteran that a veterans of other foreign wars are not receiving equal treatment, benefits, and support from the Federal Government. Veterans that have not participated in the second Iraq war and Afghanistan are being denied benefits that newer veterans have access to. Education benefits are better, they have five years more than other veterans to access education funds. What makes one veteran better than another?
