Related to the above, the VFW is not happy about POTUS minimizing the most common and one of the worst wounds of the Endless War.
As we know, the VFW is known for being a liberal, hair-setting-on-fire group.
VFW Expects Apology From POTUS
‘TBI is a serious injury and one that cannot be taken lightly’
January 24, 2020
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – "In light of today's announcement from the defense department that 34 U.S. service members suffered traumatic brain injuries as a result of Iran's retaliatory strike and President Trump's remarks which minimized these troops’ injuries, the Veterans of Foreign Wars cannot stand idle on this matter.
TBI is a serious injury and one that cannot be taken lightly. TBI is known to cause depression, memory loss, severe headaches, dizziness and fatigue — all injuries that come with both short- and long-term effects.
The VFW expects an apology from the president to our service men and women for his misguided remarks. And, we ask that he and the White House join with us in our efforts to educate Americans of the dangers TBI has on these heroes as they protect our great nation in these trying times. Our warriors require our full support more than ever in this challenging environment."
— William “Doc” Schmitz, VFW National Commander
