Lack of health care killed 2,266 Veterans last year

This just pisses me off...
The number of US veterans who died in 2008 because they lacked health insurance was 14 times higher than the US military death toll in Afghanistan that year, according to a new study.
Veterans Day for me is a time to reflect.

I reflect on the good times and the great times of my 11 years of Active Duty military service.

I remember my friends that are no longer with us.

I think about the men and women who suffered through so much that they felt the only choice they had was to take their own life.

I think about all of those homeless Veterans out there, struggling day to day.

And I realize just how lucky I am...
