Stop abandoning our vets when their used up! There fine when needed but forgotten affterword. What kind of a country are we living in these days? WE are more concerned with welfare and SSI than our Hero's? It's just a sign of the times. The Bible says in the end days they will think good is evil and evil is good! There you go! Take care of those who took care of us!

I am a Marine Vietnam Veteran and served at Khe Sanh, Hill 861 at the time of the 77 day Siege '67-68'.
When I came home after discharge in '69, I went to Nebraska-Southwest VA Hospital and with NO care only the runaround because nobody seemed to care. Not many cared about us anyway. In 1997 I was encouraged to get treatment for PTSD, which I didn't know about PTSD at the time, and other health issues that resulted from time in Nam. I was desperate so I tried one more time.

When I came home after discharge in '69, I went to Nebraska-Southwest VA Hospital and with NO care only the runaround because nobody seemed to care. Not many cared about us anyway. In 1997 I was encouraged to get treatment for PTSD, which I didn't know about PTSD at the time, and other health issues that resulted from time in Nam. I was desperate so I tried one more time. I was very surprised the way I was treated. It was all together different than from the first time. I have great treatment and support for my conditions, both physical & mental. I know there is a need for financial support for the VA system so they may serve our Veterans with swift and competent care. If I could have had the care back then, maybe I wouldn't have went through HELL AGAIN back home for all those years. Please do what we can so the new Vets of the present & future do not have to go through what us older Vets had to to receive help in all ways possible. It is better late than NEVER. Semper Fi and God Bless ALL Veterans, their families and the people who serve and support our Veterans. We deserve the best because we GAVE our best.

Semper Fi, Brother, and thank God you made it back to world! Did you read what "Idiot Child" (Robert Green) wrote out of pure ignorance about 6 above your comments? You have alot more to tell but your point that we need to take care of these kids coming back-NOW, is certainly well taken and from my experience very true. "Keep on keepin' on!"

Wwe had it bad in 'Nam but it seems from what I see and hear the "kids" are having it just as bad in "the Stans" We need to give them our support and help rhem throught the Awful Maze of getting help etc., from VA and Congress. Let's not turn our backs onthese warriors.

I was not injured during the Korean occupation after the truce was signed, I heard many gripes from vets in reference to the VA Hospital system, as a VET I avoid them and use the city? state hospital Fr Bill.

And, what if you couldn't hold a job from daily nightmares and lack of rest. And, you lost your family and everything you owned because you didn't know there was something actually wrong with yourself, because you always think it is others who are off. et cetera!

No one can hurt as deeply as those whom you love. The enemy we expected to hurt us, I think we weren't mentally prepared to be abused for what we thought was a just cause, ie defending everyone's freedom. To this day, I still converse with Vets who say that they are confused that there was very little appreciation. If our families didn't announce our homecoming, surely no one in the communities cared. Please give these kids these days a hug or a pat on the back. It has a ton of future...

It has a ton of future healing that I may never witness, but I pray my children who are serving currently, won't be as messed up as my generation from the Vietnamese era of Veterans.

Dear Marie, I am not normally inclined to prejudge anyone under most circumstances ,excepting life or death. Yet, I must succomb to an eternal calling of curiosity: Are you an artist? The reason behind the question yearns for me because of my life experiences (when I was younger, most artists were hostile toward anything military), beg me to inquire.

Our Veterans deserve much better treatment and care from us than they get. They should be honored and held dear to our hearts and taken care of. They are much more deserving of benefits than our Government heads are in my eyes. As a nurse I have been with many the casualties of war extend beyond the end of war itself. Fix it! They are more deserving than those that send them to war!

VA, Women soldiers in Vietnam also were in the line of fire no matter where they were, as long as they were in-country, and therefore are also subject to PTSD, not as you said, I could not have PTSD because I am a woman. What about having mortars dropped on your compound 24/7 and not allowing you to sleep for an entire year and seeing buildings blown up by those very mortars can that not cause you to be traumatized? Do something about that type of thinking.

Julie, apparently they did, LOL, Kui Or they were using rubber bullets when they fired at a woman or they used "flash bang devices" in place of real mortars when they dropped them on us 24/7/365. That's got to be the answer, Kui.

when a person, male or female join the u.s. military branch they are giving up their freedom to protect freedom. now why can't that same government that controls the military branches take care of the veterans when they are in need of help, medical or otherwise?

Like " Well! Thanks for hittin' the nerve, Brother! I hadn't gone off for about 2 hrs, now. A little overdue, my family would say!!!! The Credence Clearwater Revival" said in their Viet Nam hit, "I Ain't No Fortunate Son!" Or, as when the draft was still in effect, especially, the only Senator, or other highly priviviledged sons didnts go to Nam and see combat, unless they wanted to. Besides, we are better off dead to them! The sooner we die off the sooner they can "afford" more wars...

The sooner we die off the sooner they can "afford" more wars to make their unforgiveable spending spiral higher, and pay FEWER pensions and other retributions to the worthy warriors! What say you?
