This Is How You Support The Troops
The Democrats are routinely decried for not “supporting the troops.” And they regularly run away from anti-war positions as a result. However, it is a Democratic President (or more precisely the Secretary of Veterans Affairs) that made this announcement:
Veterans who were exposed to herbicides in service and who suffer from one of the “presumed” illnesses do not have to prove an association between their medical problems and their military service. This action helps Veterans to overcome the evidentiary requirements that might otherwise make it difficult for them to establish such an association in order to qualify for healthcare and other benefits needed as a result of their diseases. The “Presumption” simplifies and accelerates the application process and ensures that Veterans will receive the benefits they deserve.
Democrats have to mention this kind of stuff every time they speak in front of a veterans group or an American Legion hall. Supporting the troops doesn’t mean supporting a particular conflict (although it does mean giving troops adequate supplies during that conflict). It means supporting the troops from the moment they enlist to make a huge sacrifice for this country and for the rest of their lives.Click here for reuse options!
