    And why is this political ?

    Oh that's right, the left in the name of political correctness have dumbed down the military so much our soldiers and Marines aren't being properly trained to deal with the realities of war.

    That was a good argument until it was discovered that over half of the vets who committed suicide were never deployed outside of the CONUS.

    That's rubbish. There is no US war on Muslims. Some of our strongest allies are Muslim countries. All your posts are doing is spreading falsehoods, propaganda, and hatred. What is your purpose for doing this?

    Monte, again I point out the futility of looking for post #78 in a thread that only has 37 posts. And my name is DiAnna.

    Not only that, but the way we treat them once they've been shipped overseas is nothing short of criminal.

    In Vietnam, soldiers rarely, if ever, served more than two tours. These days, you have guys serving four, five tours in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, and serving longer tours, and that is way too much time to have your **** wound that tight. And these guys are coming back with serious freaking problems.

    Oh, shut up. Once again, APACHE has to find some way to blame "the left," and he's using the bodies of dead veterans to do it. Disgusting.

    With no R&R trips to the Philippines or Thailand and no beer. Bastards.

    Veteran healthcare, or rather the failure of it, has been covered before. No need to keep bitching about it when Obama is in office and the Dems have the Senate. Thankfully, the GOP at least has the house, so we haven't totally defunded veteran care to pay for welfare and medicaid yet.
    Yeah, it's Democrats who try to cut funding for veterans.

    It would be disgusting except that the left, in the form of Obama and Dems, have a lot to do with why those veterans are now bodies instead of living people. The way the left treats the military as a lab for social experiments and the way they threat veterans truly is disgusting.
