United States Veterans no longer deserve respect

Once our United States Veterans have fought honorably for our country and have decided to go back to their families, do they no longer deserve the respect and dignity of this countries government. We need to push our government into new legislation that will enable our veterans to recieve the psychological services they need immediately upon discharge. There needs to be discharge psychological services rendered to them before they are discharged to civilian life. Our great military spends much time on teaching our young servicemen what they need to do psychologically to survive in war time. They however, neglect to spend just as much time giving them the psychological tools to survive the adjustment to civilian life especially in the times of war when they are dealing with post traumatic stress disorder along with the normal emotions of being a civilian again. The wait for psychological services through the VA is significant. These young men can not wait, they need the immediate services. What if these honorable men had told us, \"I\'ll go fight for your freedom. But wait awhile.\" They did not hesitate to fight for our freedom, we owe them the same respect. They deserve the help they need as soon as they need it. If you feel there needs to be new laws that give our veterans access to immediate psychological services and intense pre-discharge psychological services, sign this petition. Our service men help us every hour of every day. Let\'s help them get the help they need when they need it.


I am a mother of a Iraq Marine War Veteran. I am starting this petition in hopes that as the service men of our country have helped us through many crisis, we can fight to get them the help they need.

When this was brought to the attention of the U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs he basically brushed the assault aside, stating that the U.S. Congress had to take care of the matter, as he was not empowered to enforce the statute.
