The numbers for vets are all over the web. We send them off to fight, and they come back physically and/or mentally impaired.
The VA has been there to help many, but they still keep falling short. Now with new cuts to spending the process for vets to get medical attention is even worse.
America’s 23 million veterans are facing an unprecedented crisis as the backlog of disability claims at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has grown to nearly 1 million—more than double what it was when President Obama took office.
This is by no means a bash Obama thread. He is the man in office now. I just think that this is yet another failure of the administration. How are we not more prepared to handle all of these vets coming home? Why does it seem that vets are so incredibly important when they are still considered active soldiers, yet when they get home they are brushed to the side?
