Are you a military veteran

I know a few others beside myself are veterans.

Please post if you are vet and which branch/branches you served.

I did 15 navy and 15 army national guard.

I was surprised when I found that after my 30 years of service, I’m not eligible for any VA medical assistance, because I make too much (what a laugh).
yet my mother’s youngest son who didn’t even finish boot camp and was kicked out, is now getting full benefits and assistance. My brother a year younger than me, us getting benefits, and he was only in for 4 years.

Is it just me, or does our society seem to reward slackers…

First, thank you, and all who respond here, for your service.

I am speaking only for the USA here but it does seem that the parasites are greatly outnumbering the hosts in our society. Government is consuming the private sector at a pace that will soon break its economic back. When the collapse comes it will happen fast and catch most people completely by surprise.
