Weapons Training Likely Causes Brain Injury in Troops, Study Says
Thousands of U.S. troops are likely suffering traumatic brain injury not just from battlefield explosions but from repeated exposure to trauma while training on their own weapons, according to a new study.

Service members, even those who may not have seen combat but specialize in using high explosives or weapons such as rocket launchers, could have lasting brain damage from the pounding on their necks and heads, researchers at the Center for a New American Security said in a report released Monday. The defense think tank is a nonprofit organization funded by the federal government and public- and private-sector donors.

“It’s analogous to people getting hits to the head in sports, playing football or boxing,” said Paul Scharre, a senior fellow at the center. “This is not really well understood, the primary blast effects on the brain. Exactly how it affects the brain is unclear, but the fact that ...

It's about everything. We have to have opinions about all aspects of life. And even though great men have risked their lives for others, it doesn't entitled them to all of the benefits that the VA gives them. Plenty of people risked their lives everyday, outside of the army in just as difficult situations. The only benefit they should have (like I mentioned before) is the ones directly related to physical problems from their service. Other than that they should receive no benefits.*

*Please exclude the pension that career soliders get. Just go read the comment I wrote to Kev I believe...

My own personal experience is two fold. My father fought in WWII and even spent some time as a German POW. As a family we saw the effects of military experience in his life later.
Secondly my own experience of twenty years in the military and subsequent to that changing life to be absorbed into civilian life. Now our country (Britain) does not have anywhere near the comprehensive veteran treatment which the US provides. Some get a pension some don't depending upon length of service. But that's our lot - nothing else. We joined the military as youths - thus post service we have no experience of civilian life.
If a serviceman has war experience it will have traumatic effect upon the individual I saw that in my father.
Any support be it financial or otherwise is a statement by the nation to the people who give their lives to fight and possibly die, for what the nation believes in.
If you are a pacifist(?) Then the military personnel, undaunted, still give their all for your freedoms, because the enemy remains in the world. God praises those who lay down their life....

Government spending is our spending. So it is required for us to have a right veiw point on what our money is being spent on.
Abuse of the VA system designed to care for our veterens is not right....I agree.
I would think new leadership is in order.

No one consulted me on the 4 billion pallet of cash sent to Iran either. Decisions were made by those whom we as a country placed in a position of trust which they obviously abused for their own agendas and not "for the people".

But like Lurker I'm thankful to have been born, raised, and lived in the greatest country in which many still do operate under the phrase written on our license plate, on our money and most importantly in our heart from God's Word.
"In God we trust".

Hey there Kev. Hope the studies are going strong!

Can't argue with you on those points. The VA, as with any other government agency, is prone to internal abuse and corruption. It's simply the nature of the beast (government) in spite of their well intentioned mission statements. We are all aware of it as taxpayers and citizens but unfortunately there is precious little we can do about it.

I'm too old to allow myself to get worked up about the corruption and abuses. I've learned it's a waste of energy to fret and worry about things beyond my control. But in spite of the known corruption and abuses, I do thank God that I was born and live in the greatest nation on the planet.

One last comment about the vets who have become drug addicts. Opioid abuse is a national problem and no doubt many vets have been caught up in it. Absolutely, the VA bears the responsibility and is obligated to do the right thing by getting these vets dried out and on another form of pain management that will allow them to lead a more normal life as much as is possible. We owe that to the vets.

Brother, if the consequences of service are a burden or burdens which last a lifetime, maybe this single text, which covers a multitude of situations, and is most certainly the will of God to be accomplished by us, will suffice, as a principle to be applied.

I agree wholeheartedly. I believe I mentioned this in one of my post. The solider who become physically disabled should never stop getting help. Their whole lives were changed to protect me. I have the greatest respect and honor for them and would give my own money to help them.

Ah, in that case brother, I am missing something of what you are saying, probably due to lack of knowledge as to how you work things in the USA. Thanks for your reply, it is encouraging.

Kev from US says...
I would say anyone who has served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Special Forces etc... are definitely worthy of all that they are given now. It is an extremely hard job and the pay is small and is offset by the benefits package that comes with being a veteran.

Yes I agree. But if should certainly stop at things like....
Getting a vasectomy
Addictive medicine
Transgender surgeries...

And the thing is. If the government has the right to decide what they give veterans, then they unfortunately have the right to say that these thing are included. That is part of the whole mess we have with the VA system. It shouldn't have been started in the first place. But, since it is here, there has to be some adjustments for those who have served with the prerequisites involved...

It is the understanding of a man before he joins that he will be entitled to those benefits when he joins. This is the understanding and the agreed upon wage for his service.
Excellent point. I meant yo clarify about that. Since they have already been promised the right to a pension, free medical services, etc it wouldn't be right to take that away suddenly. For those joining in the future it shouldn't be in place.
I think your response above is much more in understanding of what the situation is and the agreement between the employee and employer. Now whether or not in the future Veterans should get the same benifits is an agreement that is decided upon before wages are rendered and contracts for service entered into. I would say anyone who has served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Special Forces etc... are definitely worthy of all that they are given now. It is an extremely hard job and the pay is small and is offset by the benefits package that comes with being a veteran.

Perhaps it would help us understand if you would be more specific about the "lifetime benefits" you think veterans are entitled to and receive that you don't believe are biblical and therefore object to.

Mainly the medical benefits. I know many people who have got a vasectomy in their post-six-years-of-service. I also know many vets who are sold out drug addicts paid for by my taxes. Not to mention the hundreds of other medical services, post service soliders get that have nothing to do with any type of combact related injury. We are yet again paying for things that are wrong. And taking the veiw of right government spending makes me have to take the veiw that veterans should not be getting these "benefits".

Once again. No biblical examples to support the current system. Every "laborer is worthy of his wages" does not support the lifetime of benefits for veterans.

Yes, there are several of us who have served in the armed forces. I served 13 years in the 60's and 70's. But I really am trying to understand your POV.

Perhaps it would help us understand if you would be more specific about the "lifetime benefits" you think veterans are entitled to and receive that you don't believe are biblical and therefore object to. You are asking for specific biblical warrant for what you object to but as of yet have failed to be specific about your objections.

Btw, I'd also say that your definition of an employee/employer relationship is unrealistic. To my knowledge the federal government is the largest employer of our nation and the armed forces are a slice of the federal government.

It is the understanding of a man before he joins that he will be entitled to those benefits when he joins. This is the understanding and the agreed upon wage for his service. What if you joined a company because it had a pension and they decided to just cut it off? Bet you might look at that different since part of the reason you took the job was because of the benefits. You could cut off these benefits to all new enlisted persons with them knowing they wouldn’t get these benefits and whoever signed up after that point it would be fair because that was the agreed upon wage. To not give people the benefits they have earned by their service is dishonest. You don’t need to have a passage from the Bible quoted to realize that. Do you get a retirement?

Hey there James

You disagree with that agreement and use the bible to say it's not fair. I think I gave a biblical observation but you need to take timelook at what others are saying too. But at this time your heart seems settled to me.

Brother, if the consequences of service are a burden or burdens which last a lifetime, maybe this single text, which covers a multitude of situations, and is most certainly the will of God to be accomplished by us, will suffice, as a principle to be applied.

Galatians 6:2 KJV
(2)  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

It's all part of the renewed nature, to love God and love our fellow man.

I may be wrong, but I for one would love to see Galatians 6:2 applied much more, especially in the context of fellow believers.
