Ziegel, a 25-year-old Marine sergeant, knew the dangers of war when he was deployed for his second tour in Iraq. But he didn't expect a new battle when he returned home as a wounded warrior: a fight with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"Sometimes, you get lost in the system," he told CNN. "I feel like a Social Security number. I don't feel like Tyler Ziegel."
In Ziegel's case, he spent nearly two years recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas. Once he got out of the hospital, he was unable to hold a job. He anticipated receiving a monthly VA disability check sufficient to cover his small-town lifestyle in Washington, Illinois.

Instead, he got a check for far less than expected. After pressing for answers, Ziegel finally received a letter from the VA that rated his injuries: 80 percent for facial disfigurement, 60 percent for left arm amputation, a mere 10 percent for head trauma and nothing for his left lobe brain injury, right eye blindness and jaw fracture.

"I don't get too mad about too many things," he said. "But once we've been getting into this, I'm ready to beat down the White House door if I need to."

"I'm not expecting to live in the lap of luxury," he added. "But I am asking them to make it comfortable to raise a family and not have to struggle."

It's simple, they get what they can out you, after that, you are a liability to them and just like a corporation they try to cut back on you as much as possible, if they could they would give him NOTHING, they've already used what they needed. Talk Patriotic shit all you want, it's just business.

Bush PR.... commitment?!

Maybe Bush/Cheney should have actually fought in a war at least once in their lives to get an idea of what it takes to commit to the injured and all of the other soldiers, oh well, "Mission Accomplished" (outright propaganda... lies) over 4 years ago, no biggie!

Whine! Whine! Whine! That's all you liberals do. He knew the danger when he signed up. F*CK HIM!

There's going to be a lot more of these losers when my man, G.W.Bush, attacks Iran. I don't care how many of our soldiers die, we have to protect Israel. I mean, that's why we're in Iraq now.

If you don't like going to war for Israel and Big-Oil, then you're un-American, and shame on you! the finger

Yeah man, no chance the soldiers are protecting America. The terrorist aren't trying to kill Americans. Oh, wait.... That was first on their agenda. 9/11 ring a bell? eye rolling

I can't believe you idiots. The reason we're in Iraq and we're getting ready to attack Iran is because Osama Bin Laden and most of Al Qaeda live in Afghanistan.

Doesn't that make sense to you morons?

Jeesh, the tards on here.
