This author depicts the way our capitalist masters "support our troops"--or don't.
As a 100% combat disabled veteran and editor of the largest military and veterans new site, I have spent years dealing with abuses and fraud at the VA. The body count for the VA itself is actually higher than any war, they kill more American veterans than wars have ever killed of our military. If only I were making this up, and I am not.
For those who are unaware, there is a pecking order at the VA. Only those who are 100% disabled, something the hierarchy makes it almost impossible to qualify for, get all available treatments. Processing a compensation claim for a totally disabled veteran can take years. Mine took 12 years, the oldest I have worked on has taken 43 years. Many take 25 years. In most cases, the veteran dies while waiting for appeals.
