Today, I am sad to say I am ashamed of our treatment of our returning Veterans; from a complete lack of respect, to lower standard medical treatment, if at all.
There are no jobs, little assistance and now our government leaders want to label them all mentally incompetent!
These men and women, above all, deserve our highest level of respect for what they have freely given to our Country.
We must work in our communities to bring that level of esteem back to our Youth. No one teaches respect for our Country, Our Flag or Our Soldiers. It is up to each one of us to step up and make a difference.
This is not my Com Center; this is our Com Center. This is a Military Life-related directory. The Directory will grow each week, with input from all of us. This information is for Active Duty, Veteran, Retired , their families and our friends. Only established information sources will be utilized. The sources provided are to assist in our general welfare and political efforts.
