Today, President Obama announced most of the 150,000 American troops in Iraq will be coming home in the last 18 months ... Whatever you think of his plan, it will create a "surge" of new veterans coming home in 2009 and 2010.

Are we up to the challenge?

No they are not ready I filed my original claim in Nov 2002 I was denied in July 2003, I filed the NOD (notice of disagreement) in May 2005 they awarded me a 50% rating for PTSD despite the fact I had quit working in June 2002and my VA shrink had written for the previous 2 years despite my other medical conditions he considered me totally and permanently disabled by my PTSD symptoms that I had been badly coping with since Feb 1975. In May 2006 after a letter to then Senate Chairman of the VA committee Senator Larry Craig and a letter to VP Cheney the VA awarded me a 100% P&T.
