What Is a Veteran? — 4 Comments

  1. You speak of the benefits the veterans receive. A bit of information I’m sure everyone is unaware is once the veteran reaches 65 they now have to pay for Medicaid just like everyone else. When my husband signed up and served for 26 years, he was told that he would have free medical for LIFE. Luckily we can afford to pay for this. Sadly there are so many who are unable to meet the exorbitant amount (over $700 per month for just him). And then I think of the homeless veterans due to financial issues or drug addiction (self-medication for issues incurred in the service to our country) and our government turns a blind eye to these heroes. Instead choosing to support illegal immigrants and other countries’ needs. Makes me sick…
