Veterans Health Care: Before making more war, care for veterans

Ignoring the impact of repeated combat tours far exceeding the Vietnam era, we will reap what we sow, a tide of American war victims doing financially to us what the tsunami did to Japan. Reversing PTSD diagnoses was a shameful attempt to stem this tide.

Col. Plummer warns of a postwar letdown in military spending, including caring for veterans.

They ignore the wisdom that a nation that can’t care for its veterans, needs to stop making more veterans.
