Says GOP doesn’t provide for returning veterans

Those who might end up being boots on the ground in Syria should consider this. I think that recent history teaches us that the Republicans, many of whom promote the use of U.S. ground troops in the Middle East, have no intentions of providing support for returning soldiers in need of medical, psychological, and economic help. In their twisted view, the needs of returning veterans is nothing in comparrison to reducing taxes and government spending. Let the enlistee beware.
