Republicans Supporting Our Troops, Episode CXLVII

May 16th, 2008at 07:27am Posted by Eli

Well, let’s see.  There was voting against updating the GI Bill to give troops a college education…

And then there was the VA’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder program coordinator sending an e-mail to VA staff recommending that they not diagnose PTSD if they can possibly avoid it, and that they should diagnose “Adjustment Disorder” instead.  Because too many troops had been seeking compensation.

It also appears that the military is calling troops with mental ailments “malingerers” and giving them a General Discharge that disqualifies them from collecting on their GI Bill payments. They can’t even recover the money that they had to invest in the GI Bill fund.

Yep, Republicans sure do love our troops, and spare no effort or expense to make sure they’re treated well and rewarded for their sacrificed.
