Army of US soldiers moves to place themselves on welfare gravy train forever

Associated Press reports… ‘America’s newest veterans are filing for disability benefits at a historic rate, claiming to be the most medically and mentally troubled generation of former troops the nation has ever seen.’

The AP report continues…

‘A staggering 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. That is more than double the estimate of 21 percent who filed such claims after the Gulf War in the early 1990s, top government officials told The Associated Press. What’s more, these new veterans are claiming eight to nine ailments on average, and the most recent ones over the last year are claiming 11 to 14. By comparison, Vietnam veterans are currently receiving compensation for fewer than four, on average, and those from World War II and Korea, just two.’

Boo-hoo-hoo. Our ‘heroes’ in uniform want the civilian portion of the population to support them forever! See full article at AP IMPACT: Almost half of new vets seek disability

We have no desire to see the truly disabled American vet denied their needed government assistance, but this move in mass by soldiers to put themselves on permanent welfare is truly an appalling fraud. Jobs, NOT WELFARE for us all!

(Notice to all of you out there who want to scream that we at NMT are being ‘anti-soldier’… This AP report is based on the Pentagon’s own reports that its soldiers are trying to dessert and DESERT the military for disability benefits instead of staying and continuing to fight the corporate politicians’ wars.)

Why are returning US soldiers with behavior and/or psych problems being pumped so full with narcotics?

According to the study, vets with psychiatric and other behavior problems are being given 2-4 times the amount of narcotics if they claim to have physical pain of some sort as those without these Psych conditions. What gives? PTSD veterans prone to drug addiction get risky painkillers
