I come from a long line of Veterans, two consecutives times with Revolutationary War, Civil War, WW I, WW II, Korean Conflict, Vietnam. A large percentage of our Veterans were drafted as teenager's, they gave their all and a great number were injured physically or left with scaring memories that haunted them for the rest of their lives. A great many lost their lives and never had a chance to work and have a family, their parents and families lost them forever. The freedom they gave...

I come from a long line of Veterans, two consecutives times with Revolutationary War, Civil War, WW I, WW II, Korean Conflict, Vietnam. A large percentage of our Veterans were drafted as teenager's, they gave their all and a great number were injured physically or left with scaring memories that haunted them for the rest of their lives. A great many lost their lives and never had a chance to work and have a family, their parents and families lost them forever. The freedom they gave everyone should be more appreciated, stop and think without their sacrifice we wouldn't have our freedom, we possibly woundn't even be here. Healthcare is a story by itself, not only are the Vetern's affected by Agent Orange ETC., but wives and children even grandchildren and so on. My answer to the question is YES, because we can never do enough to pay back our VETS.

They should also receive special consideration when it comes to healthcare as well.

Actually with health care we do... if we don't have health insurance and were either discharged with an honorable discharge then we can receive low cost or free heath care from the VA depending on our income situation

I am a vet, I work at the Manchester VA hospital and I use my Blue cross blue sheild as needed , as I have never fild for a disability. I have never been involved with more caring individuals in my life. The staff at this are top notch.

They sacrificed for their country so bravely and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Yes they are our top proiority and should have enemployment, health care for them and their families and a home to live in without fear of losing it and ending up living on the street.

vetarns should be given the jobs over everyone else they are willing to work unlike the lazy sods that applie for the jobs not realy wanting to work as they get more from benifits, vets should also get on the housing list above the single mothers etc they just get pregnant to get a house away from their parents, and no imagrant should get a job in front of a veteran.

If it weren't for our veterans, we would not have freedom to do anything. They fought to keep us free and they deserve the right to work!

ABSOLUTELY! OUR VETS DESERVE SPECIAL CONSIDERATION FOR EVERYTHING! OUR MILITARY IS THE BACKBONE THAT KEEPS OUR COUNTRY FREE AND SAFE. WHEN THEY COME HOME THEY HAVE ENOUGH ADJUSTMENTS TO DEAL WITH, WE NEED TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THEM. WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER WELCOME HOME LIKE THE GUYS FROM VIET NAM GOT. BLACK BAWLING THEM EVERY WAY THEY TURN! WELCOME HOME TO ALL WHO HAVE RETURNED AND GOOD JOB TO THOSE WHO ARE STILL PROTECTING US , WE ARE PROUD OF ALL OF YOU! I AM A WIDOW OF A VIET NAM ERA VET AND I WAS PROUD TO HONOR HIS SERVICE WITH A MILITARY FUNERAL, OUR KIDS AND I WERE PROUD TO LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT AN HONOR IT WAS TO HAVE HIM FOR A HUSBAND AND FATHER! SO MY ANSWER IS YES , WE NEED TO HELP OUR VETS AS MUCH AS POSIBLE!

I think that a veteran should be considered over a non veteran only if the non veteran made an attempt to serve and was rejected for whatever reason.

I totaly agree with this. My husband served this county for 9 years. Earned his Bachlors degree while on active duty and now just completed his Masters. And he still is having a hard time finding a job, he has worked his butt off of bettering himself and sacrificed a lot for his country. I am sooo proud of him!
