The only words I can think of for what happened here are unprintable.

What kind of country fires on its own veterans? It's appalling!

ultimately, that this happened is pretty damn disappointing.....i keep waiting for "us" to get better as people.....this lovely boy (anyone younger than me is 'boy') was hurt for no other reason than someone felt he needed to "exercise his 'authority'". disappointed, disheartened, and disgusted.
