TOPIC: The Dept of VA is considering upgrading 'bad conduct' discharges to Honorable status. Many who served honorably believe this decision is wrong because vets who received less-than-honorable discharges knowingly and willingly broke laws or endangered lives or violated orders for their own personal benefit. Many who served honorably feel that after enduring enormous hardships during their military service they will be put on the level as those who intentionally committed crimes. Many who served Honorably and struggled through their service to deserve their VA benefits feel that the VA is considering giving full VA benefits to those who did not earn them solely to increase the number of bodies in VA hospitals and programs at a time when civilians and doctors working in VA hospitals and programs are experiencing lower patient numbers. At some VA hospitals the number of civilian staff seen in corridors and offices exceed the number of vet patients.


QUESTION 1: Do you feel it is right to allow a person who committed serious violations during their military service and deserved a less-than-honorable discharge should now be granted an honorble discharge?

    Yes
    No


QUESTION 2: Was former President Trump correct in pardoning convicted war criminals, a move that has led to the current consideration by the VA to 'pardon' those who knowingly did wrong while serving in uniform?

    Yes
    No


QUESTION 3: Would elevating the discharge status of those who committed crimes or violations and received less-than-honorable discharges render the Honorable Discharge worthless?

    Yes
    No


QUESTION 4: Would elevating the discharge status of those who committed crimes or violations and received less-than-honorable discharges cause future American servicepersonnel to commit crimes under the belief their criminal or unlawful behavious in uniform would one day be 'wiped clean'?

    Yes
    No
