I volunteer for the VFW on the weekends that I'm not working. And I speak to vets that are hurt and should file a disability claim and most of them say give the money to someone worse off than me. I tell them. That every veteran who fought to save this country needs to file because that is the only way that Obama will look our way and see that their is a serious problem.

Something must be done about the lack of care given to those who have put their lives on the line to protect those who chose to stay behind and be spectators. And it makes me sick to here politicians and the news give there personal opinion on subjects that they have absolutly no idea

that is a pile of bull shit...u need to call the national records center....there is no way they lost those records. and if they did and he can prove he did it, they should be paying him alot of back payments....fight them...u call your state representative, and if that doesn't work call john kerrys office in Mass. and tell them your story. just look up senator john kerry and it will show u his contact info.

I agree with Richard , if you dont fight enough, you might be left behind.. :/ Just like my friend / client who is a II WW veteran and he never got paid from that. He is 88 years old now and they think he will die and don't pay. But the guy is coming to my Rejuvenation Program and he is doing really well and I want help hm get money he deserves.

EVEN THOUGH I DON'T SUPPORT THE WAR, there are some U.S soldiers who regret being involved in the injustice, and are actually victims of this illegal war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I don't know whether white house petitions would help solve the issue, but I'm just hoping for the best as usual. Please share this with as many people as possible. Your friends, relatives, everyone that you know. You don't have to be an American to get involved.

"At least 23,000 veterans (ex-soldiers) and service members have died by suicide, according to data reported in 2008 by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Center for a New American Security titled, “Upholding the Promise: A Strategy for Veterans and Military,” says the president must confront two serious problems on veterans issues: rampant suicides and more than a million unprocessed veterans benefits claims, mostly filed by combat-wounded men and women who volunteered to fight for America during the two military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan." https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/improvements-va-healthcare-system-effort-lower-rate-veteran-suicides/rwT90HWC.

Lets not forget Cold War Veterans and Peace time veterans that have injuries or disease that is service connected. The claims process back-log is a shame. It is really shameful and does not look very good on the Department of Veterans Affairs when a veteran can get Social Security Benefits faster than VA Compensation.

Salam Alaykum, Abdul, you are correct in that many eyes were opened too the deception which was the war in Iraq. There was some good to be gleaned from a bad situation, many of us through our contact with the people in Muslim countries discovered most are good moral people who simply are not like the main stream media portrays them.

Salam Alaykum, Abdul, you are correct in that many eyes were opened too the deception which was the war in Iraq. There was some good to be gleaned from a bad situation, many of us through our contact with the people in Muslim countries discovered most are good moral people who simply are not like the main stream media portrays them. Many upon returning and realizing the truth behind the war and witnessing the horror, especially during the invasion when the heaviest use of air power and missiles occurred, simply were tormented by the fact they were used to perpetrate a lie and felt suicide was the only way to escape the guilt.

So sad, when a Veteran has no life after serving 2 tours of duty. The Obama Administration is to blame, as they didn't want to pay for his retirement. Many believe this was an injustice! The Navy is all he ever knew. That was his job. He is now unemployed, depressed and his demeanor and personality has changed drastically. The only thing the VA offered him was a prescription for anti-depressants. This was something to cover his mood swings, not address his issues. How devastating is...

Who is going to protect our country? Obama? Think again.....by the time he is out of there, we will be forced to have no morales!
