It pisses me off that the corporate media love to trumpet individual acts of generosity toward soldiers, like donated upgrades to First Class, but they'll never cover the substance of how many are treated when they cease to live up to the role of "heroes" bestowed by jingoistic idiots.

The only comment I have as a Vietnam Veteran is this. Just try to imagine how many of my brethren died after taking off the uniform in the 70's and trying to make it in the repub society of Ronnie Regen and the last 30 years. I am a member of the local YMCA. I go there to swim laps 3 times a week. I see Irak and Afghanistan Veterans there almost every time, with their private trainers and swim assistance. I'm glad they receive this type of assistance, but I can't help but think how many lives may have been rescued if Vietnam Veterans wherent so hated and shunned for 35 years.
