Well,in my opinnion,our Government is screwed up,for instance as I understand the situation in Boston,the two people responsible for the bombing were people that we welcomed into this country,paid them money to attend college,gave them scholarships and they decided to bomb innocent people,killing and maiming and running amok in general,yet we have U.S.Veterans who fought FOR this country that are having difficulty getting the benefits that the Government promised them,and said Veterans are looked upon as being a potential threat to said government,plus the fact that most veterans that take advantage of the va medical benefits are viewed by (mostly foreign doctors ) as just getting somthing for nothing and are treated by these same doctors as second class citizens,while said doctors are enjoying the freedoms that these (according to the doctors) second class citizens fought for.If you are a veteran and you happen to have to visit a regional office of the veterans administration,you are lied to,shuffled off or just told that you have to wait for 2 or 3 years to get your claim reviewed and I speak from experience,not hearsay.If you are one of the lucky ones and you DO get your benefits,then the VA officilas will review your claim in a few years and TRY to reduce your benefits or cut them off entirely.
