You're "just curious" and start your post with usual slagging comment, and I cared enough to start a thread about it. Better reevealuate who cares:twocents .You mean like the Liberal troll that began this thread?
I find A51's concept of support to be disingenuous at best.
As for the topic, I believe that if the military concludes that mental problems existed before enlistment, then why aren't these things caught at enlistment rather than when only after a problem arises? Seems like an expedient way to shove people off and screw guys out of needed treatment/benefits.
A51,I learned long ago that you have to take what you can from the military. Most of the civilians really talk big but do not give a shit. I love how they support the military. But if you ask them what they do to support the military they say "I support them in spirit or something like that". They have never lifted a finger to help the military member or their families.
Payed taxes for 33 years to support you little boys club. If they want more I'll send them more. If my vet neighbor needed help I'd help him gladly. But I'm not going to trapse all around the county looking for people to help. I'd rather pay someone else to do it, someone who probably needs a job. That covers my social contract obligations.A51,
I think Waldo's post pretty much sums up your "support" of the military.
Posting a link to an article really isn't support big fella. Have you ever DONE anything that assists Veterans?
Do you belong to or support financially any Veteran's groups?
