Can't be aligned without fixing the problems. With parts bent the wheel can't be held straight. The wheel has to have the supporting members in proper position to hold the wheel in proper position. Replace the parts and have it aligned.

They aligned it and said the struts were bent and possible mounts and the front of the car isn't straight and other things could be bent. The car doesn't pull to the right as it did Just wondering how much more could be bent. The car will go straight when I let go of the steering wheel but will go to the right evevtually

The car is supposed to drift to the right, not pull. This is because if the driver goes to sleep, heart attack, seizure, whatever the car will drift off the road so no one else on the road is in danger of your car. I wouldn't have aligned it unless it was right. Take it to someone else for a front end inspection, get a 2nd opinion.
