How we treat our veterans should be a national embarrassment.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    multiple tours, not enough doctors, joblessness, the list goes on.

    Many think this is better than Vietnam, cause those vets were spit on, but that one was only one involuntary tour and you got to go home.  That was cities where our soldiers were safe from attack.  

    It's very telling that our soldiers are cut no slack while their commanders can't get fired for mere ineffectiveness.

    Now I guess some brilliant commander is planning our exit from Afghanistan without considering what the Afghani troops that are replacing our troops need.  (see today's nyt magazine article).
