I am a retired and disabled Vietnam vet. With the recent death of Osama bin Laden, some people are suggesting the $50 million reward for his death be distributed among the people impacted by 9/11. If that happens, I am moving to Austria.
Those people have already been awarded with countless thousands or even millions of dollars.We should stop being bleeding hearts and somehow reward the people who are losing life and limb in pursuit of victory and peace in the world for a meager monthly paycheck: the soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen. They deserve the credit for all these peace-pursuing actions.
I realize this money probably cannot be handed directly to them, but I bet Veterans Affairs could help them find peace in a time of havoc. Award the money to the VA to be directed to the soldiers and families impacted by the Iraq and Afganistan wars.
