I am irritated when I get computer-generated phone calls; especially warnings that a charge has been made to my Amazon account. I do not have an Amazon account. Today, I received a phone call about a survey: "Do you think veterans should be properly compensated for their service?"

I am a veteran. In the Navy, I had free food, lodging, medical care, dental care; and so much pay that I saved half of my pay in my last two years of service. I received a free college education, and veteran's benefits helped me to buy my first house.

Just how much compensation do I deserve?
