Thank you for your service and welcome to the police state.
IT is horrible the lack of mental health care our returning vets get when they leave the service. It is a shame. I truly hope someday they are cared
for and not just dumped back out into society when returning from war. So often you hear of vets doing stuff like this and our media is so fast to
point out the fact that they are vets. why not say.."Ford car salesman arrested for rudely displaying a weapon' or "former bagboy at the corner
grocery arrested.." I think you get my point. The media is so fast to point out they are vets. Why not point out the fact that they are basically
dumped back into civilian life at the end of their service. I can tell you why, no one wants to hear that the boy who bagged their groceries when he
was 15 did this, but, tell the public a vet did it, and now you have a story.
It truly is a shame and stereotyping our entire military and all vets. Shame on the media! Shame on the people for letting them do it.
