    Demarche: I checked the forum you provided about 82nd Abn and Rangers getting killed in Libya. I no longer subscribe to military magazines but I sometimes pass Army Times newspapers-never saw anything posted about this , but how would I or any commoner,know anything as most of us were never in intel business.

    Yes, the psychopaths in control use our military like cannon-fodder for their own interests, then throw them away like chipped and damaged chess pieces. Something on the lastest disrespect to some of the bravest of brave, the Rangers:

    (FYI-this forum has had some attacks and has intermitently shut off the forum for non-members. Keep trying the link…it is normally open for viewing only)

    I went through the Family Court system in northern NY- what we pay is not child support because most of it never goes to the children. It is a very sick system and the judges infrequently take into account the human factor. Judges want job security so they do whatever their masters in Albany and NY city tell them to do. In NY state we pay “child support” until the age of 21 so moms make out real well pocketing for themselves all this free tax free money. But, we fathers, are still held responsible for college tuition even if it means we go broke.
    I hope some day these judges get payback. The only thing that matters in Family Court is your last year’s tax statements and a current pay stub.Fort Drum has expanded so the divorce court and family court business has expanded. My lawyer was honest about this but a lot of lawyers offer false hope and thus collect big fees from unknowing Fort Drum soldiers, And yes, the wonderful wars since 9-11-2001 have led to a lot of marital problems.

    Why can’t the federal law be changed to read that any portion of disability compensation awarded to a disabled veteran by the VA is prohibited from being attached to pay alimony in any state court civil divorce proceeding nor shall this disability compensation be deemed by any state court as property that can be divided in any civil divorce proceeding as well. This federal law, statute xxxxxxxx, shall take legal precedence over any state civil law statute.

    The bottom line is the law needs to be revised to include these protections for us disabled vets. Now the next hurdle is finding a politician with the guts to submit the change as a bill. Lets see if any will walk the walk.

    To the readers here at VT, does anybody care about this article? Is it gonna take another Lady Di to visit Veteran’s Hospitals and campaign against the use of weaponry that has disabled human life?

      John ,
      I put it on the slider.

      I can’t force folks to read it.

      Thank you Gordon

    Thank you Mr. Beery for this article. America is slowly turning into the “hall of shame” in regards to it’s treatment of veterans. How can the administrators of Veteran’s Compensation feel any different than they do? They are cowards who never fought a day in their life, other than their own personal well being. Thank you Gordon Duff for posting this article, as you can see, by the amount of comments on this article posted here, is that we are all ashamed!
