So let me see if I got this right. You serve your country. You do what you are told, sweat for it, bleed for it, loose sleep for it. Then one day you get injured.

You are pretty much useless to your country, so say bye bye to ever working again. Then you decide to apply for insurace. Thats not an option either because the wait time to see if you even APPLY is AT LEAST one flippin year! And thats across the country, in canada anyway.

Do the people that give their lives for us not deserve better treatment then a one flippin year wait time or am I farting in the wind here? Im honestly suprised the suicide rate isnt higher!

They risk their lives and we poo all over them when they get back. I would wanna kill myself too. What a sad state of affairs.

Does anyone else feel the same way?

Same old story. S&F. They use up the population, then discard.

Q: Why are Veterans treated like garbage if they get injured?

A: In a throw away society, broken things are scuttled off to the landfill instead of fixed and polished.

People only like veterans when their lives may be at risk.

Any other time?



Treated like sh#t.

I have always wondered, does the rules of man exceed the rules of this reality? If the rules of this reality place importance on not interfering with another person's free will but the lord of a man says "go and kill in my name", will that excuse the debt incurred?

What do you do with a paper napkin after the use thereof?

The citizens of any country are all just paper napkin's to their leaders. Used for the benefit of a country that once loved them and they it.

I think IgBlisss is correct when he referred to it as a throw away society. Some of the citizens of this nation remember a time when they had hope for this country. Some citizens cannot remember a time when they had hope for this country thereby not understanding why they should even have hope.
We all know about corruption in politics and have allowed the division to take place by some forgetting, and some not even able to remember that hope. That hope that drove a nation. A hope for a brighter future.

For those that can remember that hope, remember it now, lest it fade away forever.

a year wait, that's some good socialized medicine.

in reality, as un PC as it sounds...people like pretty things. Injuries are not pretty and they make a plurality of people feel uncomfortable. People avoid feeling uncomfortable

Is this in Canada or the US?

I only ask because I know about the US side, not the Canadian.

Slow your roll, I was just making sure. I know US Vets who live in Canada (or elsewhere) but still retain US benefits.

Are you utilizing the VAC?

It's the one issue that makes me fully support the idea of mandatory military service.

Maybe we wouldn't be so quick to send our children to fight wars with no real ending... Or at least treat them better when they get back.

Infuriating.

I think I've come to the conclusion that any expression of "love" and "respect" when spoken by the politicians, and some of their following, is just pretty words of patriotism they come up with in an attempt to gain votes...
they don't give a darn about the flag, or the constitution, or the people who go to fight our wars... just their seat of power and of course, the precious money that comes their way from all avenues because they have that power. I don't care weather you are talking about Canada, the US or any other country, this century or last century or thousands of years ago.... it's seems to be the same crap played over and over again, send our young men (and women) off to die in their big game of chess, treat them like crap when they come back emotionally and physically damaged... for the love of god, for the love of country, for the love of the flag, .... it all means the same... for the love of money and wealth!

It is disgusting, isn't it? The reason is that they are no longer useful to the U.S military, and in fact cost them money to maintain after they sustain injury.

Keep in mind that the U.S. is the military faction of the Jesuit Order, with London as the financial arm, and the Vatican as the religious arm. Together, they surreptitiously orchestrate our worldly affairs to distract us and divide us, while simultaneously consolidating money and power to further perpetuate their march towards worldwide dominance of a semiconscious, A.I augmented slave class.

Sh!t sucks, huh?

Money is needed for the illegal aliens..they gave so much as dreamers!

there were no dreamers when the nam vets came home, and they weren't treated any better.
and they weren't around during the revolutionary war of afterward...
en.wikipedia.org...

and I do believe if you go further back, you will find even more instances where war veterans were screwed over by the gov't's they served. rome and france come to mind off the top of my head, but I am sure there are plenty more examples.

If they are willing to be of service to their country,it only makes sense they should be the first to be taken care of and get first pick of jobs they are qualified for when they get home.

Great healthcare and great options.

The thing that gets me, and pisses me off, is this:

When I see advertisements for something like the Wound Warriors, wanting donations from people to help wounded and disabled veterans live—money to help with food, housing, etc—I get pissed.

It is the government that sent these people to war, to get maimed, disabled, etc, and the government should provide 100% their expenses if they are unable to for themselves and their families, for the rest of their lives: food, child care, healthcare, housing, etc, and it should NOT fall on individual donations.

You sent these people out to get #d up, you better take care of them after.

Very true, im just focused on today’s issues where common criminals are treated better then our bravest. This country’s government is corrupt and guilty of treason. Logic is gone and ‘feelings’ rule the day. a reply to: dawnstar

Now, what if ABNARTY is a veteran, and you just treated them like sh*t?

Don't be rude--you ALLUDE to the fact that you're in Canada, but don't expressly state it. If you want strangers to treat veterans (generally strangers that they don't know) better, start by being the solution in treating other people better, otherwise don't pretend to ride a high horse in your OP.

BTW, I am a veteran as well, as is my wife, and we both have a service-connected disability. But that doesn't mean that I have to rude about it...

This is one of the lower reasons for why I never wanted to sign up, not even go in as an medical officer or w/e my dad wanted me to do.

1. I could not in 100 years make it through boot camp LOL

but 2. Why the hell would I want to sign my life and my rights and my freedoms away, just to be treated like complete trash when my contract is up? To be forgotten, to be humiliated, to be spit on, to be mentally or physically damaged on top of all of that. NO.

Our country or government doesn't give a rats ass about any lowly ranked individual in the military.
