These words primarily are about veterans, and it happens that I am one. I was called into the Army twice and served on active duty as an enlisted man for three years.

To this day, I count myself fortunate that I served during the years between our wars in Korea and Vietnam as a so-called Cold Warrior.

    "Last time I checked, Veterans Affairs is funded by the federal government." - That's entirely true. As a matter of fact, for the last five years the VA has been funded to the point where they weren't able to spend all of their allotted budget, and they left money on the table. The VA has some serious problems, but a lack of funding isn't one of them.
