Rasmussen Report: 28% Say Today's Veterans Face More Challenges Than Vietnam Returnees

Breaking News

Twenty-eight percent (28%) of adults nationwide believe that veterans of today’s conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan face more challenges when they return home than veterans of the Vietnam War.

However, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that another 24% believe veterans of today’s conflicts face fewer challenges when they arrive home compared to those who served in Vietnam.

The plurality (42%) believes the challenges veterans from both eras have faced are about the same.

Twenty-seven percent (27%) of those who have served in the military say today’s veterans have it worse, while nearly the same number (28%) say they face fewer challenges than those who fought in Vietnam.
