    that, other than a couple little illegal wars, and  the VA travesties that have come to light, I haven't paid much attention to military matters.

    So when my neice started telling me some of this crap her son is enduring I was floored. She mentioned his having to pay for his meals, having to buy some of his own equipment because the stuff they were supplied with was not adequate. And now he get's a bill for missing stuff??? And they'll probably keep his last paycheck to cover it.

    You know what the result will be. Much like after Vietnam, young people in the future will be much less likely to enlist after seeing how this generation of vets were treated.

    I hope you are able to battle this Gorgon to the ground, but don't destroy yourself trying. We need you here.

      would think I have lost my mind because what I am learning ,,,,too many people in power HAVE got to know about all this travesty or in such a bubble aren't listening to the boots on the ground.  Do not believe me..LOOK at Florida, Texas, NC and it is spreading.  DO not believe that the tea party has no power.  It is a lie.   The only way we have to go is defense because they are definately on the offense,  Don't even believe the stupid people put the Tea party in power......  In these times....some believe these people are true believers....The Alecs and the Kochs and the governors and tea party congress and their tribe of followers are getting rewarded to do what they are doing.
      We need eyes in those tea parties or at least ears.
      Sometimes infiltration is the best offense.

      We the People have to make a difference and the Change.....Just do it ! Be part of helping us build a veteran community online. United Veterans of America
