Well isn't this one great! http://www.ajc.com/services/content/news/stories/2009/03/17/veterans_insurance.html I guess the salt marsh mouse, honey bees, mormon crickets and the parking lot for the little league in Puerto Rico means more to our govt than giving medical for our military, who actually are living, breathing HUMAN BEINGS! Also doesn't he understand that when you seperate from the military there is a big medical examination done, thus, any company they go to privately have those records (disability pay) and can claim it is pre-existing and deny to pay them? So if private companies say no, all that accomplished was hurting the VA So glad Bullet did 20 yrs so they could now do this to us...my guess our DS will not have any medical coverage when he retires. Add onto this http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2009/03/17/gates_readies_big_cuts_in_weapons/ All I keep envisioning is when you are already buckled in on the roller coaster and left the gate, you see the sign that says if you have high blood pressure, pregnant, heart problems, etc you should not take this ride. That is what we have now...you are already on the ride, but now you are being told that maybe you shouldn't have gotten on it.
