One of the major tenets of Yang’s plan includes changing the domestic certifications required for jobs at home that use skills attained in the service.
Under the plan’s “Veterans Health Initiative,” the campaign expects to cut veteran suicide rates by at least half by spending more on prevention efforts and research. In addition, the proposal includes more funding for doctors who specialize in women and transgender health issues and provides options for these veterans to seek treatment outside of VA services. Yang also wants to fund research into marijuana and other currently controlled substances to analyze their impacts on PTSD and pain management.
I suggest to anyone leaving the service to get a university to break down your ratings to something that employers can deal with.

"The transgender thing needs to not be given any more rope. This is bad for society and it is definitely bad for the military. Sorry if you're offended by that. I can't help you."
I agree an have said pretty much the same thing.
Simple things.......the military has managed quite well the last couple of decades with men, women, and gays in the military. There were gays in the military, long before it was ever officially sanctioned.
Transgender is a whole different ballgame. New barracks? Male/female/confused? New bathroom and upgrade every military barracks at enormous cost to accommodate a minority group? Exactly how many per 1,000 who enlist is transgender?

Well, not everything. He still raised his hand for healthcare for illegals and he's still pandering to SJW identitarians with the transgender BS.
Yang is doing his country a service by placing a UBI and now his plans for veterans services into public debate and discussion.
