I would wish everyone a happy Veterans day today, but that almost seems wrong considering so many of our troops and Veterans are struggling right now both overseas and at home.
So often we hear the Bush Adminstration and war-hawks say: "support our troops." But what we don't hear about is the fact that the VA has been short-changing mental health programs when PTSD problems are growing. Or the fact that the Bush Administration has proposed 10 BILLION dollars in Veterans health care CUTS. Enough is enough! Support our troops and Veterans - Bring them home and help them get the benefits they deserve!
To our Veterans and servicemen and women.. thank you. We're going to do our best to support you by demanding that the VA is properly funded.
