To Hell with giving GI's better benefits than anyone else.
Just give everybody all benefits.
Give the people who refused to serve in an illegal war the same benefits.
Why reward people who have blown up the innocent more or better benefits than are given to all the people in general?
Only the evil give out rewards to those who cave into serving evil and illegal orders.
It is the opposite of progressive to argue in favor of special treatment for the violent.
