Your lumping of Blinkley into the plight of veterans is an insult to the many legitimate veterans of Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Blinkley was a third-rate officer, immature, and a poor leader. Although he may indeed have problems, many are a result of his poor and weak character. His lawyers played the war hero card and won, even though he was never a war hero. What you fail to realize is that most veterans want acknowledgement and respect more than sympathy and a hand out.

Wounded in the line of duty? Didn't he fall into a hole on a beach running away from a guy whose girl he was chasing? Where do I sign up to get into your Army? What a joke.
