Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA) will announce legislation Wednesday aiming to "fix" a new Trump administration citizenship policy that affects some children of U.S. service members stationed abroad.
Do you know that there are approximately 28,000 disabled Veterans who live outside of the U.S. who are excluded from receiving health care from the VA? Many of these Veterans are classified by the VA as 50% or more disabled. If they resided in the U.S., they could be entitled to non-service connected disability health care from the VA at no cost (depending upon their financial status); but because they live overseas they are flatly denied. The question is “Why?”
Sooner or later, almost everyone in the military will say the following: “I didn’t sign up for this shit,” followed by, “My recruiter lied to me.” Sure,, many service members enter the military with the understanding that sure, maybe they won’t get their ideal duty station or an endless volleyball match in the sun. But certainly, the military will never be so bad that someone would lament ever signing up, even for a moment? It can’t possibly be that bad, can it?
