I was active duty US Army June 1993 to July 2001. I was a poor country boy and they paid for school. MEDDAC at Ft. Sill for 5 years, would have been in Bosnia for a year but got transferred out of 1st Armored Cav before they went. Did spend 6 weeks in the Mojave desert to train up. That was more than enough desert for me. I'm ready to bring the troops home but thank God for them and their families every day.

:( CNN has a program right now titled Waging War On The V.A.
Dealing w/ War Vets failed by "the system" after recieving injuries while fighting over seas in Iraq / Iran.

Unbeliveable how crapy our goverment compensates these fallien heroes that have lost limbs and lives :(
