  Should Congress Mandate Lifetime Tax Free Status For American Military Personnel Who Served In Harms Way?


TOPIC: Three things make American military personnel far different from public safety officers, merchant marines and civilian public servants... those are: pay, the UCMJ, and the inability to quit their jobs whenever they wish.

Few Americans risk their lives for their fellow citizens. The men and women who risk all and sacrifice all are the men and women who work for far less money than they could earn in the civilian sector, and work under a separate 'Constitution' called the Uniform Code of Military Justice. These men and women have no union and cannot simply say "I Quit" whenever they wish. These men and women are our military servicepersonnel who serve overseas in combat theaters.

All Americans pay taxes to keep our country safe. However, it is only our military personnel who keep our country safe at peril of losing life or limb. Their rewards are medals and if wounded, often a hard-fought battle with the military and VA to obtain deserved disability care and subsistence.

QUESTION 10/11: In 2000 and 2004 a statistically significant majority of Americans voted for a non-war veteran over two volunteer war veterans. During this period our nation's military and veterans services also suffered the most serious equipment and Department of VA failures of any previous war era. Do you think these failures would or would not have occured if a war veteran had been elected president in 2000 and/or 2004?

    Yes, it would have been the same if a war veteran was president
    No, a war veteran president would not have allowed those failures
