Worst thing to say to congress woman who lost her legs in battle. – this amazing upworthy article got me seething.
Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military, yet he used this to get special treatment from the government. He is an IRS worker of sorts. I didn’t do any other research on this waste of space. I could combust.
Then there is the lad Rep. Tammy Duckworth – go ahead. Click. Read about this amazing lady! Rep. Tammy Duckworth has lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, went OFF on Mr. Castillo. It gets pretty fantastic just how much she eloquently tears him up- in the video link – here.
My husband will be going on his 2nd deployment, something Mr. Castillo does not have experience with. I know if ( heaven forbid) my husband needed help after leaving the military- He will fall in the category of a vet that will not seek help, because others need it more. I hope that we will never need those services, but just thinking about it makes me angry.
Basic services are denied, delayed, and struggled for EVERY day for men and women who have been overseas, in battle, in horrendous situations, and yet Mr. Castillo puts himself ABOVE a lady who got his legs and arm blown off- ” deserves compensation for his, and his families sacrifices made for this country” TO HER FACE.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME
I am sorry, you “played football for your country”. You never “served”, you never touched a weapon to protect your country, you never deployed to put your life down for your country. You do not deserve to to be in the same category of those who have served, and sacrificed for their country because of your FREAKING ankle – from prep school. ( side note. He was self reporting a disability rating of 30% for his ankle, while Duckworth who lost 3 limbs? her arm that could potentially still be lost, has limited feeling- only has a rating of 20% …lets see. She got blown up, you twisted your ankle.
I hope your video goes viral.
I hope if there any more of “you” out there manipulating the system and hurting our REAL veterans – You take note, maybe go crawl into a hole.
I am going to go run. Best way to use this anger!
