    The VA has failed too many people, for various reasons, from lack of funding to our national embarrassment over VietNam and the attempt to sweep it under the rug.
    And it's still going on.
    Lots of Gulf War 1 & 2 vets are going untreated as well.
    The way we treat our vets has been a national disgrace for a couple decades, carefully ignored by Corporate Media.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      veterans and Iraq veterans are going without help.  A lot of my classmates were working with the veterans coming home, but I believe those programs have been cut and limited as well now.  I have a family member dealing with not only the Gulf War, but also Iraq.  Some of the veterans can't talk especially to therapists in the private sector because they aren't allowed to talk, so some turn to substances to get through.

      The media makes a game of war, with their big screens, corporate sets and corporate reporters acting like it is something to be excited about.
