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...

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.

We did what We were asked and now are payibg the price. We deserve Jobs over those who did not serve.

Yes, absolutely. Veterans gave up civilian jobs, opportunities and career growth in order to serve.

I don't believe I am any more special than anyone else, I believe I should be taken care of so that I can keep helping my fellow man. I am God's Army, I can't fight the battle a lone.

I think they should because they have been overseas or otherwise serving our country, and when they come back, many of them become homeless, and far too many commit suicide. Having a steady job early on can restore their confidence, help feed their families, and probably prevent a lot of tragedy. It isn't that the rest of us don't need those same things, but I believe the vets need it more acutely than the rest of us.
