Bring them home




U. S. Rep. Lois Capps showed a commendable degree of concern in publishing figures in New Times (“Veterans will receive more help,” March 12) on recent congressional attempts to help returning veterans: a total of about $2.25 billion. However, she neglected to point out that in one week we are spending more than $2 billion fighting both wars.

Why not just say NO and stop creating veterans who come home in desperate need of repair and rehabilitation? Not to mention the lives that would be saved in Iraq and Afghanistan!
