We either need to stop these senseless wars or start drafting people. Deploying these people multiple times to war zones shows the utter lack of respect we as a nation have for our veterans or understanding of what they go through.

Great. More government employees with a sense of entitlement, thinking they deserve for us to spend all our hard-earned money to take care of them because they volunteered for a job they knew the dangers of. We can't afford this. Veterans need to suck it up and work for themselves like everyone else.

jstanthrmbr - Its because of those Veterans that you are able to spew your moronic and uninformed opinion. You think we have it so bad here, trying going outside of your bubble and experience how things are in the rest of the world. You are not worthy of licking the mud off of a Veterans boots.

jstanthrmbr you sound like another self-centered, greedy, infantile whiner who just rides along feeding at the trough of life created for you by the efforts of others. What have you done for your country, state, municipality, neighbors, friends, or family recently? Entitlements? The military veterans and people in the fire, police, medical responder, and other fields earned and deserve it. Yes they know the dangers but at least they are willing to provide the effort and sacrifice. I'd like to know what you do for a living for your so-called 'hard earned money'. Grow up and wise up and thank somebody for all that you have around you!

jstanthrmbr - are you a disabled veteran? Did you serve your country? Have you volunteered at the VA Medical Center? My platoon sargeant was blinded by shrapnel when he was just 23 years old. Would you dare to tell him to just "suck it up"? He'd rip you a new one.
