Do tell. Always easy to smear the administration with stories like this but the way the military treats soldiers and marines today I would believe it’s true.

Yes there is. What is the reason for more mental health problems among college students? Trauma isn't good for baggage.

Yes, there is more to this story. I know of one young man who received an honorable discharge because he did not like following orders and could not control his anger. He is attending college on the GI Bill. His discharge was at the convenience of the government for a personality disorder. He functions normally in society. Instead of making him stay in, they did him and the service a favor and did not hold him to his contract. I think they gave him a better deal than he deserved. A significant portion of the other personality discharges may be because of similar personality problems.

This is contrary to everything I have known about “service connected” status as relates to the VA, medical care and disability benefits. This is the very first time I’ve ever heard “pre-existing” in this context.

“Jon Soltz, an Iraq war combat veteran who founded the group VoteVets.org, said untreated psychological problems were contributing to the highest military suicide rate in a quarter-century and to growing homelessness among veterans, he said.”
lets google this guy:

I think Kit Bond has been had, and Obama never pre-existed, LOL
