I agree with the veteran but he shamed himself with his language and demeanor. It would have been much more effective if he spoke with condescending wisdom instead of the foul mouth aggressiveness.

There are people with heart conditions that can only do so much distance
but walk perfectly or maybe a lot of distance depending on each day...they
would look totally normal to everyone but they are not. Me mum could only
walk an extremely short distance & would have to sit. Someone who has NO
clue may observe her walking 10 yrds & think she's okay when she could no
I am disabled after a hip replacement with on going complications & I am
too young for that category. I was left with nerve damage to both legs &
feet. I still need 2 operations...so I make meself walk every day regardless
of pain because it could be my last... I never know from one day to the next
how things will be...I try so hard to hide the pain & the disability...some people
will think nothing is wrong...but I could fall at any moment...the soles of me feet
go to sleep when walking. So I could appear as normal to anyone except close
friends & family. I hate taking the space...I am to have the cane with me at all times
& I also have other issues besides walking which constitutes a service dog.
So I really hope this veteran pushes his rights.
