    Yeah, you're right about the sad realities of life in today's military. My son comes home for good next week and I have mixed feelings about it. I prepared him for years to enlist in the Army and make a career of it, but morale is non-existent and senior NCOs and all officers are only concerned about their own careers.

    In many units, E5s and below are denied any dignity. And daily there are more directives coming down forcing on troops increased warnings to be politically correct. One thing for sure, if this military environment existed 40 years ago, 50% of all soldiers in Vietnam would be in prison for life. Steve

    OBAMA IS SURPRISED VETS DON'T WANT TO PAY THEIR OWN MEDICAL BILLS.
    Isn't this the most ridiculous thing you ever heard? Read Obama's quote in red below. The man is a lunatic!! Assume it to be just another "change" the stupid voters of the USA made by electing him and then watch as he selects crooked and dishonest people to serve in his cabinet!! Snopes has nothing on the statement. When will our equally inept senators and legislators stop this crazy man??




    HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES........WHAT AN EMPTY HEADED PERSON HE MUST BE....SEND THIS TO EVERYONE TO SHOW JUST WHAT HE THINKS OF OUR MILITARY WHO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY AND GET HURT PROTECTING OUR FREEDOM! I HAVE ANOTHER NAME FOR THIS CREATURE, BUT I'M TRYING TO STOP USING THAT WORD FOR HIM....IT IS NOT NICE.....!



    Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans' private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty.


    The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal. "Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country," Obama continued.. "I wasn't asking for blood - just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."
