Im sorry. Maybe I am just being a stereotypical ass, but in my life time I have met far too many "injured" war vets that are just blatantly taking advantage of the government to get free money. One of my friends apparently hurt his back so badly in Iraq he doesn't have to work anymore and gets disability checks, but still can play basketball with us every weekend. My other buddy's dad apparently hurt his leg so badly overseas that he doesn't have to work either, now he just sits in his garage all day smoking weed and getting paid to do nothing.... not even work an office job where he could sit down all day. I am nowhere near implying that all injured war vets scam the system like that, but like anything people will take notice of the bad before the good

"be the change you want to be in the world"... Maybe ask the guy what's up, tell him that you think it's wrong that he can participate in a physical sport like basketball if he is receiving disability check. And if he gets all pissy just drop it, but it might feel better to just say it, ya know? Not being judgmental because we can't always say whats on our minds.
