This is supposed to be about "understanding" vets.

"Do you have PTSD?"

"What's is like to shoot someone?"

"Have you ever killed anyone?"

"Get to know them".

EPIC MOTHERFUKKIN FAIL. The only "vets" I know that want to do any chitty-chatting to THOSE answers are posers. The rest of us would rather talk lawn care. What dumbass bullshit.

Gunny. You gotta know...they will do anything, say anything for a Dollar.

Whoever thought that commercial up...probably wears a safety pin, diaper, and lives in their parents basement. They are insulted by everything except...MONEY.

Haven't seen it, but from your description it sounds more anti-war than anything.

"Let's all hold hands and sing Kumbaya and understand the poor confused killer. It's not his fault his mind is f-d up". And the commercial is done by people that look too young to shave.

What is it they think they have to say to ME? There's: "We know how you feel (because our instruction book told us all about it)"; or, "We couldn't possibly know how it feels BUT ... followed by all the patronizing pity and all the reasons they do know ...".

Seems to me like a good way to set someone who is just getting by by asking the wrong questions.

Oh, and the commercial is the same channel that has "The Truth" commercials where they want you to believe tobacco is responsible for all ills ever faced by Mankind. TruTV, I think. And I believe it's Vevo that runs them on youtube.
