Neither does the VA

By many current conservatives I am probably considered a liberal, but in my opinion if a vet needs/wants Viagra, medical treatment, job training, counseling, temporary housing or an education then I think they have damn well earned it. Look at the headline about military suicides and you realize that we have put a lot of physical, emotional and financial pressure on our vets and their families. I don't support a blank check for anyone but US veterans are not getting anything near what we owe them.

It's been covered above, but Viagra is not free through the VA. unless the "disability" is service related. PTSD might qualify you. And, even then they prescribe only 3 or 4 pills for 30 days, and the 'script says to break 'em in half so you get twice as many bones.

It's a joke. Would you want to drink only half a beer so you theoretically get twice as many beers out of a six pak? Of course not. It takes a whole pill to play hide the salami.

So if you ever come out of your mom's basement and actually get a non-blow-up girlfriend, you may discover that 3 rides a month really isn't enough.

Finally, anyone who wears or has worn a uniform has written a check to the US Govt for up to and including his/her life. It can be cashed at any time. We're all heroes.

Bullshiat.

Between

A basic salary
educational benefits
job retraining benefits
health benefits
retirement benefits
mortgage benefits
tax benefits
travel benefits
housing benefits
job preference benefits
and thousands of others, the total compensation for the lowest grunt in the armed forces is now over $100,000/year equivalent.

US soliders are EXCEPTIONALLY well compensated, and it sounds to me that a blank check is EXACTLY what you are supporting..

Enough is enough is RIGHT! YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY BATshiat INSANE.

(CITATION.JPEG)

Do you even KNOW what an American warrior is paid?

And YOU get EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE SAME FEDERAL BENEFITS without you having to risk your tiny yellow skin!

Go upstairs to your Mom's Kitchen, your Pizza Rolls are done and she wants to microwave a hotpocket.


Well, there is a massive disparity in pay between junior enlisted and senior officer pay. I am fortunate enough to have had a college education, and entered in as an officer. My pay is very comfortable and puts me in the slightly upper middle class. Plus, I've been in AFG for a long ass time, so I'm not paying federal taxes (don't tell Mitt). I'm doing just fine, financially at least, and should probably not ask taxpayers to pay for my middle pocket salutes.

However, PFC Jones, does not have much disposable income, especially if he decided to marry one of the locals around Camp LeJeune,

Big difference.

Are you talking about war veterans or all veterans? Because I can tell you, my cousin has been sitting on his ass stateside, never in any danger, but will take any upgrade/free drink/freebie offered to him. He says if people are stupid enough not to question whether he's a combat vet, then he has every right to take advantage of their generosity. He once got applause walking through an airport, because he was in uniform, then got upgraded on his flight. Does he deserve all those things because he's simply in the military?


No he doesn't, and he's a turd. I hate it when I see people wearing their uniform around in airports or at a freaking restaurant when they damn sure don't need to be. That's one of the great things about the Marines. We don't allow cammies to be worn in town. If you're going to try to go on free drink patrol, all your chest candy (or lack thereof) is right there for anyone to see and judge for themselves.

It is kind of strange, isn't it, that you can't find a single Ferrarri or Aston-Martin dealership adjacent to a military base, but you're guaranteed to find hundreds of payday lenders, rent-to-own appliance stores, bad-credit used car dealers, and pawn shops.

Our national defense generates a lot of wealth, but not for the people who wear uniforms, as you've noticed.
