“An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.
My friend, who is a vet, informed me that many vets don’t feel like they can apply at all becuase their injuries were so mild compared to injuries vets like Rep. Duckworth had. (Said vets have very valid injuries, like PTSD, shrapnel, and brain trauma, etc.)
So the world needs to know about guys like this to prevent them from getting away with fraud. I’d love it if you shared and tweeted this. My friends who actually sacrificed in the line of duty would really appreciate it, too.”
