    with my Crazy Uncle Father-in-law who is retired military and his response was "The army issues you a rifle. not a family"
    Bush's recent statements that his legacy project is to try and make Umercan's appreciate the veterans he created with his bogus wars makes me want to puke.
    I believe anyone who fights in our wars should be provided for in perpetuity. No questions asked. Members of Congress are and they serve no one.

      I met my wife in the Army.  Had no desire to get married previously.  The Army issues me a wife.  Both children born in Army hospitals.  Army issued kids.

        He is a fucking idiot. He is retired military and he votes Republican. Republicans constantly vote to cut benefits to the military, including his pension and medical benefits. I would have better luck speaking to my cat about these issues. Most Republican voters vote against their best interests. Go figure?
