A veteran receives a 100% PTSD disability check & he still complains about what the military owes him. Should he be honored in your opinion?

    It is sad to say, but veterans also suffer from the same entitlement mentality that so many in this country have.

    There are some troops with combat related PTSD who deserve disability welfare.

    There are too many with claims of PTSD, seeking disability welfare, who have no intention of seeking treatment, as improvement of those symptoms would mean the welfare checks would dry up.

    There is PTSD in the police/fire/EMS across this country, many who have good response to treatment. Why wouldn't our troops have the same improvement?

    Because of the aspect of lifelong welfare checks!

    Yes. No amount of money can compensate for the trauma of combat.

    He's disabled because he was defending his country. That means he can't do things other people his age can do, probably has constant medical problems and pain. Yes, he should be honored.

      Yea he will never have to be re-evaluated. He's considered permanently disabled.  The judge keeps moving back his court dates, which is BS because he put a woman in the hospital.
