We do this after every war, try to make them go away, pretend the don't exist. I get to hear the stories from veterans' families. Wholesome stuff. Way to go, George, for putting them there for so long in the first place. Way to go, Barack, for not bringing them home when you said you would and not sticking up for them.

After reading all the stuff about returning vets...etc..Why anyone would want to join the Military is beyond my comprehension

Best Answer

If you think that today's vets are treated bad, during the depression, the WW1 vets were in Washington DC demanding their pension that was promised them. When Wilson ignored them they set up tent cities. When his patience finally wore out Wilson gave Col. MacGarther orders to move the vets out of Washington. MacGarther went in with heavily armed troops and burned the tent cities down before many of the vets had a chance to get out. Later when Truman fired him he got better treatment then any of the men who served under him. Hey Truman was a WW1 vet, I wonder if there was bad blood between him and Macgarther.

Why did you just post republicans?
HACK! How about posting all the names.

Best Answer

How about you do that- I had difficulty finding any- But a handful Republicans supported the Dem's bill.

Best Answer

I don't understand what you are talking about. Please be specific about the legislation you mention. By the way, 40 Republicans do not make a majority of anything in either house of Congress. Get off you Democrat High Horse because you don't have one.

Best Answer

It is not the responsibility of the country to keep them employed. It is our responsibility to take care of them if they have been injured.
