Right now in America, there are approximately 3.5 million disabled veterans drawing, on average, $1,000 in VA disability. Many of these veterans suffer from permanent disabilities that have greatly reduced their ability to earn an income, if not snuffed that ability out entirely, and many of them do not function as well with regular life skills and capabilities as they did before becoming injured in service to their country.
Many of these veterans are missing limbs, have severe back and joint pain and other issues as a result of the heavy body armor they wore in the wars in the Middle East, and an even larger number suffer from invisible wounds, such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), the root cause in 22 veterans a day taking their own lives in the mass veteran suicide epidemic we are now seeing in America.
However, most of the veterans who suffer from disabilities will tell you that they would proudly serve their country again if given the opportunity.
There is a different group of people in America who are also receiving benefits from the government. However, this group of people have not served their country in war, and even more amazing, they are receiving more in benefits than our disabled combat veterans! And on top of that? They are still complaining and demanding more!
Look at this Facebook comment that has gone viral from one welfare recipient in America who receives more in food aid alone than the average disabled American veteran receives in disability compensation.
We chose to block this individual's name and picture, but it can be found in dozens of other places all around the internet now that it has gone viral.

So there you have it folks. Brave men and women who put their lives on the line for this great nation and who ended up losing a part of themselves through physical or mental/psychological disabilities, and their ne'er do welling counter parts who have never served, having been getting a free ride regardless, and who are screaming for more.
