It's sad that American's care more about Hilary Clinton drinking a beer and how others go on large spending spree on the tax payer's dollar, while a homeless vet sleeps in a box or on a bench not knowing where their next meal is coming from. I know where I want tax payers money to go, I keep posting about it, where do you want it to go?
I know that the VA hospitals love vets and probably charge the govt big bucks every time one visits. I have friends that are there a lot.
Older vets used to get the GI bill to buy homes and go to school.I found the website and it looks like it still exists,so why are they homeless?
well this is something people can write their congressman about...it is sad if this is the case.
If people don't know its a problem they can't fix it. Many chose to overlook because its not them, well its happening to me, so I'm screaming about it!!
Sometimes, even after a year, they cannot get benefits. My father is a lawyer in my hometown, and a good friend of his is a paralyzed former Army special forces soldier. The V.A. attempted to deny him some benefits, I'm not sure which. I do know that my father had to take them to court to get the benefits accorded to him. If this happens to the ones that are paralyzed, i can only imagine what happens to the ones with PTSD and other less apparent conditions, as the general public might see it.
Because the government is not yours anymore, it became the government of the elite!
