Letter: US asks too much of its military, then ignores its veterans’ needs

The military is called on for every little thing because America thinks that solves everything and anything. The “good ol’ VA” doesn’t help after one has served the military unless one has been severely wounded.

My husband served in the Navy, but because it wasn’t one of many of our wartimes, he cannot get any help from Veterans Affairs. He wasted four years, lost his hearing, spending precious time in the Navy for absolutely nothing beneficial.

What does America do? It continues sending people to other countries , who are fighting among themselves, to get our country involved. That’s a very unintelligent decision!
