I honestly think the higher ups in the US Military are using the Hegellian Dialectic (problem-reaction-solution) to it's full capability on this one.
Think about it. Vets are about the only people that know what really goes on in war zones, and in keeping them drugged up, they can almost numb
infantrymen from the horrors of war, as well as making their credibility almost nonexistent upon returning to the states, should they try to speak out
against the war, or anything of that nature. I actually refuse to put my service on my resume, as it seems that people are afraid of vets these days.
They parrot slogans like "We support our troops!", and yet when they are face to face with a vet, they get all nervous. I have been in job
interviews where everything was going good until the interviewer read the bottom of my resume which had a very generalized bit about my military
service. As soon as she got to that part, I could see that she was quite nervous. After that point, she tried to rush the interview as much as
possible so she could get me out the door. They never called back either. Since that I deleted that part from my resume and the funny thing is, the
next interview I got after that landed me a job with a pretty cool company (crane, aerial lift and movie light (200 000W+) rentals), so that goes to
show. They are working to soil the credibility of vets, and to a large extent, it's working.
