microcosm: God bless you. My post above had way too much vitriol in it but you have reminded me that there are Americans who care. A friend of mine has been trying to get the VA to fix his face which was smashed on a mission in Panama and is still trying. The guy lives with chronic pain simply for being a full-on patriot Pat Tillman type and now he's paying the price bcause of stupid lack of concern for wounded vets.
I really wish there was a plan in place where Americans could volunteer to help Veterans. Just to have an organized plan to welcome these guys home not just by the military, but by the nation as well. They just seem so short changed.
--oh wait, they do have a plan: Give change to any old homeless dude. Chances are, he fought in some war.
Does this friend have it documented of the injury in the military medial records?
