Some of us, who were there, continue to experience situations which we wish we didn't have. I'd say we're still sacrificing in certain ways.

Last point, having worked with over a thousand veterans in my career, I do not recall a single veteran ever "...begging the regular people..." for a darn thing. Maybe my exposure to veterans wasn't as expansive or broad as yours was. Please correct me if I am in error.

I get my basic hunting and fishing license free now because I'm old. I get a free state park pass because I left behind a good part of my hearing in the military (service connected disability) which I would gladly forego if I could get my hearing back.

But, perhaps the greatest thing I get to have now is the knowledge and greatest honor that I served my country honorably and well for four years.
You know the VA Opened back up the against orange claims I hear it every time I call the 1800 number

Did you register? Do you have one of the conditions caused by Agent Orange? Have you contacted a claims specialist with the DAV, VFW, AMERICAN LEGION, VVA, orThe Order of the Purple Heart to help you file a claim for Agent Orange, hearing loss, injury, combat related or otherwise, sustained while on active duty? Contact one of the groups I mentioned above, they will help you. You and the Benefits section of the VA are adversaries, not allies. The service agencies are your allies.

Can't believe that anybody living in tne USof A could say that they would not like Veterans getting a break on something as small as free hunting and fishing. They need to get in and see what its all about. Shame on you.

Lot's of mixed emotions here..and that's what they are Emotions.
I volunteered for Nam..and sat in Germany drinking good beer and seeing the sights for 3 years..I'm no Hero , why should I get a free license, I mean Thanks for thinkin of me but the worst Combat I saw was Bar fights.
I should have paid the Military for all they taught me...

Not to mention putting my life at risk to being able to eventually be able to collect that "free" money.


Btw: I bet it would really grinds your gears to know that I get my D/L free from the state.
I missed out on the free college as well. in 1980 I received the VEAP-veterans educational assistance program where I put in $ 2700 and I would received $5400 .Sounded like a good ideal till I got out in 1987 and that $5400 was split into 36 equal payments for a 4 year program...I get a free DL and a couple tags for my time served
