And Now Our Fallen’s Families Lose Their Loved One’s Benenfits

Filed under: General Discussion — Tags: , , , , , — bobfunke @ 2:26

Send an individual into a war, an, immoral war, (what war is moral?), and sadly, they lose their lives. There is a stipend for the family of $100,000 to help with costs associated, (by the way,  it was $35,000 when I was in), and no matter what pile of money you put on life, you cannot get that life back. All of the years bringing up a child, the years of childhood, love, school, you cannot bring back the dead; there will always be that hole in the lives of the survivors, the pain.

We all must die, it is the way  of things; but a natural death is far better than a combat  death, and to not receive what one was promised to help a family is particularly noxious. We have just entered the 13th year of war, an atrocity to be sure, soldiers still die, holes in lives never to be filled with laughter, only tears.

End war, stack arms, it’s not the money, it’s the lives, from all sides that count. My son is not in the service, I talked him out of it; I wish I could talk all people out of war.

War Ia A Racket…and it becomes more so everyday.

Peace Bob

    • Thank you. There is so much happening in the world getting a hold on the big picture, attaining Peace. The entire nation should be in the streets demanding an end to war, except to defend the nation, (since we are the most powerful nation on earth, I don”t see any invasions on the horizon).
      Those of us who served know the harrowing experiences one can go through; what we fail to understand is that 85-90% of the victims of war are civilians.
      Keep pressing for Peace and please perform s random act of kindness.

    • Simon, would you mind discussing your problem? Perhaps we can work something out. I apologize for the long delay in replying to you.
