    The way our vet’s are being treated today is a shame. Just think what it would be like to come home from war and find that your country doesn’t care for you.

    From the very beginning of our country our war veterans have been mistreated. Just look at that history. One of the reasons for Shay’s Rebellion (1786) and the protests in Washington D. C. in 1932 were caused by it.

    Today’s vets have it good compared to the Viet Nam vets. Those guys had to HIDE their service in order to be treated as human beings.

    I certainly appreciate the sentiment for the Vets. Having served 42 yrs ago I was subjected to a less than enthusiastic reception. Still there is a big difference in being a Vet who served 1 yr tour and those who served the duration in wars I and II a lot of the WW I Vets were promised things that didn’t pan out due to the depression; There was some serious injustice leading to loss of life. WW II Vets did much better.
    The GI Bill passed and college education was offered along with affordable housing. I’d say we Vietnam Vets expected to fight the war like our fathers and uncles, but it wasn’t like that at all. No obvious enemy; no Front or “lines”. A few faced terror while many typed away in offices and far too many made up fantastic stories because there was a guilt: it was a real war, but it was nothing like we had played at and watched at the movies. I’ve said too much and I’m sorry. I was just trying to make some sense. Enjoy the comic, it’s nice.

    I got stuck in that era that didn’t get the GI bill.
    .
    1993, March, I got sent to Saudi Arabia for the First Gulf War because a single father, who was required to sign the same form as me, ie: “If you have a kid and we need you to go somewhere, you better have someone who can take her/him!”, cried that he couldn’t go because there was nobody to care for his daughter. Ex-wife in jail or rehab or something.
    .
    Oh! And we were all told while there that we ‘needed to get this shot’, it would keep us healthy, and it wasn’t going to be put on our shot record. “Not on my shot record? I don’t think so!” so 2 days later, they said we ‘had’ to get this shot, and again, not on the shot record!
    .
    Thank God we were able to get a few minutes of free satillite phone, and I told my husband that day. He got hold of the news and then, suddenly, the shot went away.
    .
    I believe it was a ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ shot. and I don’t mean to prevent it, either.
    .
    One month into the trip, I got sent to the middle of that big desert, 30 miles south of the capital, Riyadh, for another 2 1/2 months, and the rest of my crew was sent home!
    .
    Oh, well, Thanks to Prez “Can’t keep my pants up” Clinton, my husband and I were permited to retire a couple years early, and we still appreciate that.

    The G. I. Bill gave back $4 for every $1 spent. Though it tended to only go to white male veterans.
