    I wouldn't expect a vet to act like a school aged kid...Hey everyone look what this person said, even though I know 99.9% of the people are going to be outraged, let me create a thread and quote someone, maybe in context, but if that was the case why did you fail to say you ended the message with "you got a problem with that?"
    That makes it sound like things were already heating up by the time of that post, but I could be totally wrong about that

    Yes, you are 100% entitled to those government benefits, but I think you already knew that

    I have the utmost respect for anyone who serves or has served! THANK YOU!!
    And, IMHO anyone that thinks otherwise is a moron.

    I am a disabled combat vet. We signed a fucking dotted line, we fought for people's freedom of speech whether it be bashing us or burning flags. You need to calm the fuck down whoever the OP is. You need to learn to take people's words with a grain of salt, some people like rustling jimmies. Just judging from your lunatic ranting, I am pretty sure you where a POG that never stepped foot outside the wire or had a firefight. I might be wrong but I am pretty sure I am right. Shit 99% of the modern vets only danger is the DFAC being out of ice cream or not having French fries for dinner.

    Lastly, non-drafted vets need to quit feeling so fucking entitled you're acting like a bunch of libcucks. I get it you think you deserve the world on a silver platter but we signed up for it fruity. We volunteered to be the Sheepdogs that kill the wolves going for our sheep. So show some fucking bearing and carry on like a civilized person instead of acting like a whiny bitch.

    Bullshit about Vet's being self entitled and bullshit to 99% of modern vets only danger is the ice cream unless you were in the Air Force, you an AF Vet?

    I suggest you get the context of why the OP was made.

    I was assigned to other services my entire career if that lets in on what I did....I am also PMC right now hopefully that clarifies and gives you a warm fuzzy sir. Funny you mention the AF like it is some type of pussy branch. They have the most diverse special forces of all the branches but hey wtf do I know since I am just an AF vet right? JTAC/TACP/PJ/SOWT all get assigned to rangers, SOF, seal, STS units. We had to go through our rigorous training then go through the other branches but hey I'm just some pussy AF vet ayyyyy.

    I did read it, and he needs to grow some thicker skin. My opinion is my own and I stand firm on it. As of recently with all the flag stomping, flag burning, people speaking out about BS people just need to learn to let it glide off their back like water as we are in America and they have a freedom of speech. I just think its a waste of time to get into pissing matches. It is the same idea as talking politics people WILL NOT change the way they think regardless of the facts.

    When was the last time you deployed sir? You don't seem to understand how the deployments work this day and age. SOF types, PMCs and some select groups leave the base. The rest sit inside the wire has been that way for nearly 10 years now. A) it reduces casualties B) lets us hit stuff easier without having to play babysitter to those "AF" types you mentioned...

    I think when I rolled through Arifjan and Ali Al Saleem to Afghan they had ice cream machines, candy bars and junk out. You could definitely tell the ones that indulged as they had that penguin walk about them in the heat of the day.

    He wasn't using his status as a crutch, some ignorant self entitled fuck believes Vet's are leeches, that's what he called him out on.

    As for flag burning and what not, yes I agree. If someone feels that that is the way to protest Government I support it and constantly speak out against ignorant self entitled pricks who wrap themselves around the flag.

    But yeah, getting in pissing contests is useless but at the same time you need to call the ignorant assholes out, say your piece then move on.

    VA is a whole different ball of wax right now brother. I can see how some people see vets as leeching due to the bad apples, same shit with welfare. I have seen my shit go through a board and I got low ratings, where as I have seen NUMEROUS youngins' get 100% that have never deployed and concoct some military induced mental stress/panic attacks/PTSD sob story. But alas at least Nam' vets are finally getting their Agent Orange diagnosed only took 40+ fucking years. So with that time frame all the desert storm/Iraqi Freedom vets might start seeing burn pit money in 2050 ;)

    gulf war shit I'm pretty convinced it was mostly due to the experimental drugs they pumped into us. Like the Anthrax Vaccine that had never been used on humans before. I remember my ass burning after getting that and most of us pissed in our bedding (took them till well into winter to get sleeping bags to us) that night due to it. Then the P-Tab's, again never used on humans before. Then come to find out P-Tabs was just a mild dose of nerve agent, theory was to build up our immunity to Nerve Agents. If you look at the symptoms of Nerve Agent poisoning it pretty much match's Gulf War syndrome.

    I saw the aftermath, tendons, ligaments nerve fiber, and connective tissues basically hardening and breaking or the body attacking it.
    Several friends going from alpha male ass kickers to dissolving desiccated husks in short order. passing it to their wives and children.

    Got a friend who's son is the classic DU birth defect. From this current shit.

    Yeah I have some effects but still relatively healthy. I haven't filed any claims cause the VA scares the shit out of me.

    I deployed to Desert Shield/Storm with the 82nd as NBCNCO and am pretty convinced the nerve agent pre-treatment pills really messed with people but I advised against taking them but a few did and they were messed up....
    Spending multiple OEF deployments with burn pits scaredme more...

    Yep, gotta love our government who likes to use Service Members as Guinea Pigs then deny any responsibility for their actions. Look at the Atomic Vet's, Agent Orange, now Gulf War Syndrome with the P-Tabs, etc., etc.

    Meh.

    I don't really give a fuck about personal insults. I made that clear a couple posts down from the OP. I could have started hundreds of threads whining about someone insulting me. But I'm often the one doing some insulting myself. Not a big deal.

    I do care when when someone claims that veteran benefits are a free government handout. Especially from a fuck that never served and goes on to imply that his paying tax is somehow is a greater sacrifice than my or any other veterans health/life. This thread was started to discuss that, not some personal attacks by a libtard.

    But, feel free to defend the libtards. I think you earned your benefits and nothing was given to you for free. I'll stick with my fellow vets.

    A bunch of us from my unit had a 25 year reunion a bit over a year ago. 90% are fucked up.

    Taking the pills was not optional for us. They actually made us take them in formation. That and we were exposed to low level sarin.

    I was lucky they took my advice because at the time I was a PFC with about a little over a year in... so they gave us the option... after I pointed out that they weren't FDA certified AND that the , FDA and DOD would probably deny all culpability, most opted against taking it. I only keep in touch with one person and they're fucked...

    I come from a military family. My parents have always said that if they get sick i better not dare take them to a VA. Father served 23 years, he never asked for a military discount. Once he did get a free carwash on veterans day though haha. I appreciate everyones service, i always wanted to serve but medical conditions have kept me out.

    Ive never gone to a veterans day thing. I live next to a few of my battle buddies and its weird they always go out and ask if i want free food.
    I feel like if i should get appreciated it shouldn't be just on one day.
    Am i the only one that feels weird about that?

    Yep and I always get uncomfortable when ever I hear the "Thank you for your service". I don't make an issue or even say anything about it, it just makes me uncomfortable.

    lol. libtards/libcucks, only thing they're good for is the sweet refreshing tear drop ice tea they've been providing since November and it will be in stock for the next 8 years.

    I used to get spun up on what people say but after awhile I just stopped because the ones talking shit are some fat worthless fuck sitting in his basement rubbing one out to the jimmys he's rustling. Yes he is wrong but don't give him another platform to continue his bullshit spewing.

    Ugh didn't mean to quote without comment on the last one. (If there is a way to delete it, anyone please let me know) but that user has no idea, i completely agree with giving the money back for our health. At the same time our services for the freedoms everyone enjoys did not cost our lives so I am truly greatful. I have a sister that user can be made at. She lives off of the goverment when she is perfectly of getting a job. People perfectly capable of working that dont are the entitled ones whom are the drain on the economy. I love her but there is nothing i can do. I have tried and the only response she gives is 'they will take away my SSI'. For a 28 year old she souldnt be getting it in the first place. Even though i have been rated at 70% i still work my ass off in every way possible. I guess my point is a little education about the true cost could go a long way.

    Alittle bit of "get off your arse" will get you a long way. What I never figured out was, If you sit on your butt and collect benefits, you'll never make any more or go any farter in life then the handout.

    Call me greedy but I have expensive habits that I couldn't afford on benefits.

    PS I'm talking about healthy, able bodied folks who wont look for a job.
