Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What the Yanks give each year to their veterans who are disabled during service has more than doubled since 2000, rising from $14.8 billion to $39.4 billion in 2011, according to their Department of Veterans Affairs.


    Veteran disability costs more than doubled since 2000

    Anyone got a currency converter ? :)
     
  2. You don't suspect this might be something do do with all the wars they've been fighting since 2001?
     
  3. Bingo! But i wonder if George Dubya factored that in as part of his world domination master plan. :)
     
  4. Who would have thought that two fairly vicious COIN operations mainly being fought against IEDs would have left a lot more disabled veterans?

    For your next bone thread can I suggest a stunning expose into the rate of occurrence of defecation in forested areas by animals of the Ursidea family?
