The “old timers” know Tammy Duckworth. She is a 100 percent disabled Vet, who lost both legs in the Iraq war. She was also employed by the VA…as an undersecretary. (This is a top position at VA, just under VAsec who also has to be approved by congress).
I bring that to your attention because she is a great example of a 100 percent Vet WHO IS WORKING FULL TIME. Oh, yes, and Tammy Duckworth is now Senator Tammy Duckworth. So, dont worry if you have been able to overcome your disabilities and go back to work. She continues to collect disability from VA, as she should. There is nothing wrong with becoming one of the few who have overcame their disabilities to do a job.
