The poll should have included disability and compensation benefits. Without those my family and I wouldn't have a chance. No matter how difficult it is to qualify I still appreciate them.

What GI Bill benefits??!! Mine ran out while I was still on active duty! Part of the switch from the old to the new was a scam to get a bunch of us that joined in the 60s and 70s off their over-burdened budget.

I for one thought it was a rotten deal. I got to use some of my benefits before I retired, but lost over half my total entitlement simply because I stayed in the service.

Thanks Uncle Sugar!
