jock_1 said The OP's and left's hate for president Bush and the military have been displayed in the forums many many times
The Vet who wrote the letter raises some really important issues regarding healthcare and medical treatment of wounded warriors, that have been mostly ignored, and is a shameful reflection on everyone in this country for not doing something about it, and forcing the government to make this right.
where he loses me, is when he rails against bush/cheney for not prosecuting the wars the way HE wanted it done. when you enlist in the military you're there to execute the Commander in Chief's decisions, you're not there to make moral judgement on what country to invade or what people you're going to kill.
I happen to agree that the wars were badly managed, and profiteering was the primary motive by the executive branch, but he joined "Bush's" military, and he was obligated to fight Bush's war.
