And to add insult to injury these injured soldiers are having to FIGHT to get their SSDI benefits, even though they may be 100% disabled by the military. I have been reading some of the nightmare stories by some of these soldiers in the AARP Forums> Issues and Elections> Social Security , look under " Tell Us Your Social Security Nightmare " then look at page 22 of this thread for a post by the soldier,"smitty(smithrs)". This poor fellow took over two years to get his SSDI benefits, now he speaks to groups of wounded soldiers trying to go through the system to get their benefits, when they ask "why do we have to go to court in front of an ALJ to be approved for SSDI?", he tells them "its because your country has failed you". Makes me want to cry.
