Letter: Veterans get little help after their sacrifices in other countries’ wars

I am so disgusted with Veterans Affairs. It does not assist veterans who wasted their lives for no reason. America seems to be at war all the time with no purpose.

We are playing referee to those countries, so why must we interrupt their little wars? We are playing hero at great expense.
