I served in the US Air Force for 4 yrs and after discharge I became disabled. I now have coverage through the VA . If I had not served I would have not been able to buy health insurance prior to the ACA. If I had not served I would not have been able to afford insurance and I would have been dead a long time ago. It's sad that people in the richest, most powerful nation in the world cannot afford to be well or have medical coverage because of their situation. I'm a proud veteran and even prouder that I served a country that cares about everyone being covered.
