    saying this for years and years. Not last week, but for years. As Jon said this didn't happen last year. I've not served myself, but as a military brat it pains me in a manner I can't put to words.

    Around 20 vets a day kill themselves. There are stories of them calling for help and being put on hold. It is horrible at levels I can't put to words .....

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      of veterans... some of the worst was to Vietnam Veterans and that is part of the problem. Agent Orange has plagued Nam vets for 40 years and is coming home now. The fact is the government dose not like paying for the aftermath of war, never has never will. I know Vietnam Veterans that have waited several years to have their claims settled.

      The megaphone is bigger now so maybe something will come about but I have my doubts....
