I did mercenary shit, after discharge, which normalizes the idea of NOT counting on your country to take care of you (like they do in the UK/AU/Most other first world countries except the US… and Denmark, Switzerland, etc. that mostly use mercenaries & as such are due “nothing” beyond what the avg citizen is dire… which is still more than the US grants it’s vets. ).
I never even claimed my GI Bill benefits. Just because? I. Could. Not. Handle. The. VA.

That’s no small feat.
