True . No on ever mentions the on going cost when costing for a war . Costing for a war . Makes it sound like a trip to the supermarket . Canada has the situation where amputees had to prove to Vet Affairs they still had a limb missing . It was designed to be a re-evaluation for wounded Vets to see if they still needed financial help but was done in a totally insensitive way . The Canadian Vet Affairs gave back to the government a whole bank role of money because it wasn't needed...I am certain many Vets are not back where they were prior to deployment, either mentally, physically or financially .
I am not singling out a specific country for criticism, for they all are guilty of minimum care . Suicide among Vets is shocking . Cases of death by cop or head-ons with a truck or a failure to realise the person was a Vet have understated the number of suicides .
These are our friends and family that we sent into harms way so we wouldn't have to go...they deserve better .
