  1. I didn't mean to infer only needy, only those more in need than this person. So how are benefits delivered? The guy with two years gets the very same benefits as the guy who did 8, 10, 20 years. Obviously the longer serving career vets also get a pension. Don't get me started on Social Security. Way too many who never paid in get benefits. And some who paid in get their benefits reduced because of other retirement income. My ss would be zero because of my Leo retirement. And I never asked you to remove anyone from your website, that statement has wasn't necessary. Why thank
  2. And you would be wrong again on both counts. This has more to do with what's right and what's wrong. He and his wife (both retired) have a very comfortable life. I think these benefits could have been given to someone who really deserves it. I'm not looking at this from a cop's perspective and I know the difference between the two. You finally hit the nail on the head though, my "problem" (if you want to call it that) is with this one particular person. It just seems to me that he is taking advantage of a system designed to help those veterans in need, which he isn't.
  3. You guys are conflating what I said. I'm talking about a specific individual I have known for 20+ years. Joined the Marines at 18 right out of high school. Peacetime He wasn't married and didn't "leave loved ones behind". Made more money than before he joined, learned a valuable skill. Not sure he sacrificed much. Although a reserve for four more years, he wasn't called back to serve in Vietnam nor did he volunteer to serve. I guess someone else got drafted in his place. As to your unwarranted comment about deputy sheriff's, maybe that's what they do where you live, not so in California.
  4. Phantom being himself, having a contrary opinion (nothing wrong with that) and not backing down.
  5. I guess I don't feel that someone who served two years in peacetime a veteran. He was taught a skill that took him through life, that should be compensation enough. His hearing loss only only became apparent a couple of years ago (at age 76) and he just recently applied for and now receives the monthly benefit. In contrast, my father in law served 29 years in the Army Air Corps/USAF. He flew B24's in the Pacific , served at the Pentagon during Korea, then served numerous missions in Vietnam flying helicopters. He had both knees replaced as a result of having to jump out of a burning plan
  6. I'm surprised they didn't say ALLEGED instead of CHARGED.
  7. I love the fact that my ex neighbor in California gets 10% off at various stores for serving 2 years active duty (1960-1961) and 4 years reserve(1962,63,64,65). He joined out of high school because he had nothing else going for him, learned his lifelong trade of truck driver, shot on the rifle team and now collects $125 per month disability for hearing loss. Also got free hearing aids ($5,000), cause all of a sudden he can't hear due to the fact they didn't use hearing protection back then.. He was stationed at Camp Pendelton in San Diego County. Just don't seem right.
  8. I can't believe it's been there since 1957 and this is the first I've heard of it!!
  9. I'll bet if you mic a few of the bullets you will find a similar variation.
  10. Happy birthday Jack-o, ya whipper snapper. I turned 67 last month.
  11. Today it's St, Louis style ribs on the grill, baked beans, corn on the cob. Yesterday was hamburgers, potato salad and onion rings. Tomorrow is gonna be a nice grilled ribeye (medium rare), covered in sautéed mushrooms, and a twice baked potato. I like food.
  12. I have an RCBS Reloader Special that I find I don't have a need for. I mounted it to a 4x6x1 piece of hardwood that you can either c clamp or screw down. Makes it portable. It's in very good condition. I'll post a pic when I get home.
