Thread Name: BS: News on VA?
Subject: RE: BS: News on VA?
I think it is appalling that years ago the military pretty much forced their new memebers to smoke--'Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, pick 'em if ya don't'(crawl around on your hands and knees and pick up butts) and issuing free smokes in C-rations. Now, the VA will not cover smoking related illness at all. Sen. Paul Wellstone was working on getting emphysema, LC, etc. coverage re-instated when he died.
