I got my Vietnam GI Bill benefits - help to get a loan to buy my first house and a check each school month while I learned my trade. I might be dead today if the VA hadn't helped me sober up. I was damn glad to get the help and I'm for damned sure not a "taker" or a "victim".
The newer Veterans, many created by an illegal and unnecessary war, deserve no less than whatever they need.
