This veteran is not so different from many other veterans who live with chronic pain on a daily basis..I am one of them, though obviously not quite as severe as Tomas's pain is.
There are many of us that deal with the pain everyday as well as feeling like we are lab rats as well because of the multitude of medications we also take....and for the medications that many of do not want to take..Tomas Young plight represents many veterans and he should be commended for bringing the issue into the limelight...though honestly even the bravest of us sometimes just gets tired of being brave.
I know I had many nights when I went to sleep and hoped I wouldn't wake up.

The fight goes on. Tomas Young takes on the difficult tasks that the strongest of us would pale in the face of.

NEVER will the people who did this to him be held accountable.

It wasn't Saddam Hussein. It wasn't the Iraqi people.
It wasn't Osama Bin Laden and it wasn't the Taliban.

It was George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.

Who took WARRIORS and PATRIOTS who joined our military after 911 to defend this country from those who attacked us...

and instead got sent to the personal vendetta war.

While those in question lied and eventually made profits off that war...thousands upon thousands of our soldiers died, lost limbs or have wounds some of us will never understand.

And the ones who did it got away with it. And only their conscience could be a real punishment....

if they had one.

Good choice. I am proud of you and ashamed of George Bush as a President. It isn't fair that so many are suffering and just holding on and he and his administration walk free. They should be brought to trial. As a parent I hurt for all your suffering. Will say a prayer for you. You did what you felt was right at the time and your courage is inspiring. You are a true hero while other only claim to be.

You should not choose this thread for such a message. His life was devastated and he has already spoken against the war. Those are words he does not deserve to read.

The truth hurts. As much as I sympathize with him, he chose to join the military and knew that part of his job was to kill.

Your time spent on a war based on lies will always go unjustified. You did your part by serving as an American soldier to further protect your fellow citizens. Your courageous acts will always be honored and appreciated, as much as you understand that it was for all of the wrong reasons from the men up top.

Thanks man.
