I just listened to Obama's speech, given at Arlington National Cemetery. In the speech, he said ALL the right things to the assembled Veterans. Trouble is, his words don't match his deeds, AGAIN (see Healthcare Reform Act).
The sad facts for veterans have not changed:
- VA medical care is a shambles, a pretense of comprehensive modern medicine;
- Veterans are treated, almost universally, as if they are all dangerous crazies, almost forced to "admit" PTSD, leading to their Second Amendment rights being removed without benefit of due process;
- The current GI Bill is like a penny in a beggar's cup compared to the post-WW2 benefits;
- Above all, Obama LEADS the military of the USA, he leads it in war, and he has forgotten how to win a war, or even why winning is necessary.
As a Veteran, I am terribly disappointed in my Commander-in-Chief.
