Veterans news, articles and information:
|11/11/2016 - Ray Starmann, editor of USADefenseWatch.com, just posted this must-read Veterans Day commentary on college "crybully" snowflakes. It is an outstanding read, and it explains much of what has gone wrong with today's "pussified" youth who seem incapable of doing anything at all without claiming to be "triggered"...|
|5/20/2016 - In a long overdue move, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has finally granted approval for clinical trials researching the therapeutic value of marijuana on veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

|3/23/2016 - As part of our EPA Watch program that aims to test public water supplies across America for toxic heavy metals and chemicals, I just finished testing a water sample that was collected from inside the VA hospital located at 950 Campbell Avenue, West Haven, Connecticut, zip code 06516. Click here for...|
|1/31/2016 - The S.1203 bill has been quick to draw criticism from a variety of groups due to its controversial attempt to mandate vaccinations for all veterans that wish to receive medical services from the Veterans Administration (VA).(1)
It has long been suggested that veterans who seek medical...|
|1/22/2016 - Those who are sent abroad to serve our country are often sadly neglected once they return home. But there are also veterans suffering from a tragic fate which befell them here within our nation's borders who are also being forgotten and ignored by those in power.
Fort McClellan is a now-defunct military...|
|12/28/2015 - It's a problem that veterans have had to face after every war throughout U.S. history, even if it wasn't always called the same thing.
Whether it has been referred to as "shell shock," or "battle fatigue," or by its most modern incarnation, "post-traumatic stress disorder," all soldiers, sailors,...|
|9/16/2015 - A new scheme by the federal agency tasked with caring for military veterans threatens to use servicemen's genes as a weapon against their constitutional rights. The so-called "Million Veterans Program," a voluntary research program by the Veterans Administration (VA) branded as "improving health care...|
|8/13/2015 - As ironic as it sounds, the Obama administration's Department of Veterans Affairs is actually working to disarm veterans with an insane policy that treats America's warriors as threats.
As reported by The Daily Caller, the VA is assisting in the disarming process by ensuring veterans are placed on...|
|7/30/2015 - The extent of the shameful neglect on the part of the Department of Veterans Affairs toward sick veterans seeking health care is only now becoming apparent. A leaked document has revealed that more than 238,000 veterans died while their applications for treatment were pending.
That's nearly one-third...|
|7/16/2015 12:13:38 PM - Does Uncle Sam hate his own military veterans? You might think so given his history of mistreatment, medical experimentation and outright disdain for them.
The latest insult is actually a repeat of an earlier one: Again, the Veterans Administration has failed the very clients that the nation's largest...|
|6/18/2015 - According to a shocking statistic from the Department of Veterans Affairs from 2013, 22 U.S. military veterans were committing suicide every day. And while the figure may have tempered somewhat since then, it still remains high.
There have been a number of "mainstream" reasons given for the high...|
|6/11/2015 - A year ago, as the summer of 2013 dawned, the Obama Administration was hit with yet another scandal, one that would resonate with Democrat and Republican voters: VA Hospitals around the country were falsifying appointment records in order to satisfy treatment quotas, leaving scores of veterans without...|
|4/30/2015 - In a moment of what may have been unbelievable candor, a CNN host demonstrated why hers is one of the least-watched cable news channels on the air today.
Her name: Brooke Baldwin.
As reported by Breitbart News' media critic John Nolte, Baldwin made the outrageous insinuation that veterans, somehow,...|
|4/23/2015 - The New York Times ran an article on March 26, 2015 that exposed insufficient treatment of soldiers wounded by chemical agents as they were disarming chemical munitions in Iraq.

|11/29/2014 - Tens of millions of Americans were outraged earlier this year when news broke that Veterans Administration hospitals were deleting veterans' records and failing to schedule them for needed medical appointments in order to appear as though they were fixing a horrible backlog of patients who had yet to...|
|11/17/2014 - It's becoming clear -- honorable US service men and women are becoming nothing more than expendable numbers filed away in a system set up to profit off their service, rather than respect and honor their service. For those who volunteer to serve, it's about defending the country's freedom and values,...|
|10/28/2014 - The potential for Ebola to be deployed as a weapon of terror has been on everyone's minds since the Dallas outbreak and the NYC doctor episode. One prominent online publication now believes that Ebola's deployment as a weapon is already under way (see below).

It's not uncommon for those suffering from PTSD to experience feelings of shock, guilt and anger, while also having...|
|8/25/2014 - It's easy to let current circumstances in our lives dictate our thoughts and feelings. When a problem arises, if we get sick, we are quick to blame it on anything but ourselves. In this way, we are undermining the power of our own thoughts and intentions at work, in us and around us, guiding our present...|
|8/6/2014 - The VA hospital system has come under fire recently, ironically around the same time that Obamacare enrollments were initially pushed. The main concerns have been VA eligibility applications "lost" and long waits that have left many needing urgent care or having gone beyond care, as in dead. There have...|
|7/16/2014 - "We are all connected. We can't just build a wall or a fence and say no more. This is America. Our doors are open."

The report from Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., himself a physician,...|
|6/16/2014 - A just-released report by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) revealed that the dearth of patient care for our nation's veterans is more widespread -- and shocking -- than initially thought.
The report, which was based on an audit of nearly half of the VA's 1,700 medical centers, clinics and...|
|5/26/2014 - Recent revelations that VA hospitals kept veterans on secret "waiting lists" to deny them care are shocking, if not downright despicable. If the moral integrity of any government is measured by how well it treats its own veterans, the current U.S. government has almost no morality at all. We owe it...|
|5/20/2014 - The horrific Veterans Administration scandal, in which scores of patients on a "secret list" reportedly died after spending as long as a year without treatment, has widened. CNN correspondent Jake Tapper recently grilled White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough over President Obama's usual scandal...|

According to a recently released...|
|4/6/2014 - From flashbacks and insomnia to anxiety and depression, veterans are coming home to America in need of help on many levels, and the last thing they need is "chemical" medicine. Though "psych" meds are prescribed almost across the board for "psychological" issues, the psychiatric manual DSM-5 doesn't...|
|1/30/2014 - Did you know that the number of homeless (or on the brink of being homeless) veterans who served in the Middle East has tripled in just the past three years? It's true. Many "vets" are returning from multiple deployments with more stress, more injuries and more needs for help and resources. They should...|
|12/5/2013 - You may not always agree with our country's decisions to send troops to certain parts of the world, but holding the men and women who do the fighting in contempt is not right, no matter how you feel about U.S. foreign policy.
So it's no surprise that veterans and the owner of a local bar and grill...|
|11/17/2013 - It used to be that "yoga" and "veterans" were two words you never heard in the same sentence. But in 2013, yoga for veterans has become a necessary practice for those suffering with PTSD, with classes springing up around the country. In fact, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' National Center...|
|11/11/2013 - A major indicator of the deteriorating quality of conventional medical care in the U.S. is its growing reliance on pharmaceutical drugs as a catch-all for pain and disease management. And a new study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry shows that this dire situation is only worsening,...|
|10/16/2013 - The president of the United States has his priorities mixed up. And what's more, he ought to be ashamed of himself.
That isn't a Democrat or Republican criticism. It is a statement of fact regarding any American president who would allow illegal aliens the "right" to protest on a taxpayer-bought-and-paid-for...|
|7/10/2013 - A pensions case has become the site of a vicious battleground between the Anglo-American establishment and a British scientist in a row over accepted safe levels of radiation exposure.

|7/26/2012 - The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history. It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the...|
|7/18/2012 - Eight U.S. Army veterans have claimed in court that the federal government denied their medical claims and that the government regularly does so with scores of other veterans as part of a "standardized" practice.
In the suit, the vets - led by plaintiff Dannie Fail - claim the Army's Servicemembers...|
|7/16/2012 - There is despicable, there is diabolical, and there are both. This appears to be a story about the latter.
Families of four veterans diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following their tours of duty in combat zones who committed suicide after returning home are charging Prudential Insurance...|
|5/27/2012 - We depend on them to protect our country, our lives, our freedom, our way of life. So why does our government continue to shortchange our veterans by chronically underfunding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), especially at a time when our vets need the VA the most?
As lawmakers and the president...|
|5/12/2012 - The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is no different than any other government agency, in that it is a slow, bureaucracy-heavy, perpetually under-resourced leviathan that isn't as responsive to its constituency as it was designed to be. But that doesn't mean the VA, as it is most commonly known...|
|3/30/2012 - As if some returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan didn't have enough problems already, many of them are now being prescribed risky painkillers that can have profoundly negative effects, especially for those with pre-existing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other physical ailments.
|9/14/2011 - More than 20 years after the end of the Gulf War, tens of thousands of US veterans are still complaining of a host of symptoms developed during or after their tour of duty.
