From my relatives and friends experiences, I know that the treatment that many of our returing soldiers recieve in terms of A) health care and B) jobs is deplorable. Many soldiers come home only to struggle through a terrible amount of bureaucracy to get the health care they deserve and many come back to find no jobs and very little meaningfull assistance at finding jobs.

Support the troops by actually supporting them. Write your representatives and demand action.
All I will say is you guys don't know the half of what is going on at walter reed and places like that I could go on for pages but i will say that it is only a small group that really give a d^%* about the returning soldiers for those of you that are I thank you from the bottom of my heart but whe ppl throw things at your vechile just because you are in uniform and yell hateful things at you it is really apparent that something has gone missing and that thing is pride in your country. Like I said i thank you that support the soldiers from the bottom of my heart but honestly the truth is you all are in the minority the majority couldn't care less if it doesn't directly affect them. the sad truth is also that some of these ppl are getting ignored and passed over because they are hurt and that in my opinion is garbage. sorry I wil get off my soap box now

It has happened to me and another soldier personally when I was in WA state there is a lot of hate and discontent up there granted there is support too but there is plenty of ppl that have done stuff like that you just never hear it
