Some of the comments, reply’s and thumbs up/down here are evidence of how some in our population really feel about our military and veterans.
They don’t care as much as they think and say they do.
Quite depressing.

Great idea, however, i wish something could be done for many of us that have lost friends and comrades over the years, both in battle and suicide. Generally, the VA does a good job with health care and providing for other medical services. I find it offensive that many in… Read more »

Too bad our troops were not deployed protecting our southern border instead engaged in a futile 20-year boondoggle in Afghanistan that seems only to have further enriched the military-industrial complex.

Nice thought but we don’t need or want pretty green lights, we want to be prioritized over illegals, is that too much to ask? What we have to travel and jump through hoops for we see illegals being given locally and far more rapidly just for being illegal, it’s not… Read more »

Your absolutely right Tinner, it’s like an insult. Must be a democrat that came up with that idea.

Funny how Dems are the only ones actually making policy improvements to help Vets, while Rs make noise and cut funding for the VA.

Tinner IMO,don’t blame the “illegals’ for ignoring so many of the Veterans this Country has been ignoring for years and years,especially the homeless Veterans…not for the red to be blaming the blue now. The past one-term administration,while they were giving BILLIONS of dollars in tax breaks to the rich and… Read more »

When and where did I blame the illegals? I’d be doing the same thing if I were them, and if the president invited me to come. “Ignoring” is an exaggeration but you’re right, this country hasn’t made veterans a priority, have any idea why? The illegals seem to be getting… Read more »

Tinner The Biden Administration’s PACT-act,helping Veterans and their families with medical help and issues is much better than all those lies and double-talk we got from trump and his long and annoying four years in office.. All those trump-lies ,told mainly around the 2018 mid-terms,and again when he was up… Read more »

I don’t even tell people I served anymore. Too many liberals left their cesspool cities and moved here. Not exactly the nicest people.

Served what exactly? Maybe you had good intentions and thought you were fighting for “freedom” and I applaud that aspect for those who sold them selves the idea of serving. But the fact is you and every other person who “serves” is nothing more than a tool for corporate interests.… Read more »

What a silly statement. I am a liberal and I honor veterans who have served and died for our country. Oh and no , I don’t live in a “cesspool city”, but right here in the beautiful Eastern Sierra. Don’t generalize like that Piner. Everyone, including “illegals” as some people… Read more »

I find it difficult to believe somebody can prioritize veterans over illegals if they can’t even recognize and call them for what they are, illegals. The incentives we have for illegal immigration started with they “just want a better life for their families.” That’s where prioritizing illegals over veterans began.… Read more »

Yes, they are illegal immigrants. Calling them by the slang term “illegals” is my objection. We are all human beings and nobody should be “prioritized” over anyone. We all deserve respect and help. My husband is a veteran and he agrees.

You clearly don’t honor veterans, stop thinking and saying that you do.

Jubie, you don’t think veterans should be prioritized over illegals, really?!
Nothing I have ever heard IN ALL MY LIFE has given me such a feeling of hopelessness than what you just said in your last reply, I could cry right now.

Tinner In what I see and know,about 99 % of our Veterans don’t need or want anytype of babysitting from our Government…except for medical care,drug prices and the things that go along with it….after all the talk,talk,talk of doing something about that problem,but no real action from 2016-2020,it took the… Read more »

Nothing silly about that statement at all. I’ve seen enough of your elitist comments on here. You pack more hate than me.

I’ve gotten a few eyerolls, always college age kids, when I wear my duty station hat. On occasion young boys stare then ask “were you in the army?” then we talk a bit, that’s always fun. I know a few liberals who left CA and kept voting the same way,… Read more »

While the new neighbor from an urban area seemed to think it was okay to shoot at bears out his back door the last time my well being was deliberately threatened by another person here in the Eastern Sierra it was a self proclaimed “local” – and that was not… Read more »
