These make-believe benefits would make being a vet so much better
In this episode of the Mandatory Fun podcast, Blake, Tim, and O.V. once again speak with stand-up comedian and Marine veteran Mitch Burrow about what fantasy benefits vets would love to receive.
We asked Mitch what fantasy benefits or one law he would love to get exempted from, his response wasn't surprising for a Marine Corps veteran.
"Murder. I would kill so many people," Mitch humorously states. "Do you know how clear the [highway] 405 would be? I wouldn't have been late today."
When service members exit the military, they will receive an essential document nearly as important as their birth certificate — the DD-214. Veterans won't be able to file for any monthly compensation or post-service healthcare until they have the paperwork in hand and are registered at the V.A.
Contact your local Veteran Service Officer for more details.
