Memorial Day

As we recently observed Veterans Day, many would argue Americans have come far in our recognition of a veteran’s commitment. Others believe we have much more to do to truly honor their service and sacrifice. Which comes closest to your view? Choose three.

We have thousands of US Veterans sleeping on the streets in this country. Biden brought in thousands of unvetted stone-age Afghan refugees while abandoning US citizens, military personnel and green card holders to the mercy of the Taliban. Biden is allowing a couple million of the world’s poorest people who bring absolutely NOTHING to the table to just walk in to this country. They are poor, desperate, unskilled, illiterate, non-English speaking and in many cases criminal people who come here illegally expecting the taxpayers to provide for their every need. Our fraud president provides for every need of illegals while ignoring our own veterans. I am outraged and sad at the same time. No more refugees, no more illegals while even one veteran sleeps on the street.

It’s a disgrace that we do not do more for our veterans. The money that government wastes could be out to much better use by taking better care of our veterans

Especially when our present leadership wishes to give big amounts to those crossing our border illegally. This makes all of us veterans wonder about those making these decisions. Rvn 68-69

This country’s so-called leaders can apparently reach into thin air and pull down trillions of dollars for their pet projects and advance the causes our very creator calls abominations. Our government, with it’s unlimited resources should provide a FREE home for EVERY vet who survives to come home. If they wanted to set guidelines like variables per time of service, etc. fine. It shouldn’t even require private donations, but of course we all should give over and above our taxes. It’s the least we can do. . . No greater love than a man lay down his life for others.

Taking care of our veterans is not on this admin. agenda. Home land security and defense budgets cut while social programs increase! A disgraceful admin. from the top down. There is nothing this admin. has done to enhance America!

As a retired Navy vet I think it is absolutely criminal that the present administration has turned our military into their push for CRT and wokeness. I am angry…just flat out angry.

On another point, although it is getting better, we need to take better care of our vets. From the Veteran’s Administration to other federal, state and local governments, to corporate business, we need to do that much better.

Viewing recent wait times for the VA, Hawaii being the worse, it’s a disgrace and a slap in the face for those vets in need. Shape up now or ship vets out to the private sector, can’t be any worse.

It is extremely angering and a slap in the face to veterans to hear the Biden Administration’s proposed $450k to illegals for being separated from their child after entering this country by breaking federal law and never having invested anything into our country. I say this as a first-generation legal immigratnt and veteran. The proposed money should go to all disabled and homeless veterans and their families for their sacrifice to our country. By no means in hell should illegal immigrants be awarded any money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sadly have to agree with you, Nancy. One of my sons has joined the Navy; it’s so sad to see and hear how far left the Navy has gone.

We the people treat veterans great – the government that sent them to war does not still treat their service related injuries. To many Afghan & Iraqi was veterans are still struggling to get the care & benefits they were promised. Vietnam Nam Veterans still do not get the benefits they were promised!

One of my brothers was injured in the military and the other brother served 30 years in the military and recently passed away. He must be spinning in his grave after the way the Marines were killed in Afghanistan and other Americans were left behind. Shame on body-bag Joe and the Democrats for doing this. I don’t know how they sleep at night.

They sleep fine because they never had their own loved ones disrespected, uncared for and struggling after their military stints. Joe’s just a pigeon after the peanuts and walking in circles to find them.

They have no conscience!! Self centered politicians living in the present moment of power and greed.When have we heard the word God, Family or Patriotism from this admin.? We did under President Trump.
God…. is now the Government
Family…. as they so define it to be
Patriotism…. where on does not have to stand or recite the pledge, tear down historic monuments with impunity!
Moral decay with this admin. using the Constitution as a doormat.

Biden wants to give illegal aliens $450K but we can’t care for our veterans. It shows how highly our government thinks of our vets.

The Democraps could care less about veterans and this country. Their number one priority is the illegals crossing the border, they get everything they need. The non- citizen will always come before the citizen. This whole administration is a total disgrace.

The Veterans Administration is worse than ever. Can’t voice your opinion on their website. It’s like if they want your opinion, they’ll give it to you. Last week, I called the advocacy hot line to complain about being treated unfairly at Lyons campus. I was challenged by a foreigner who couldn’t speak English well enough to be understood. The advocate couldn’t speak English very well either and was more an advocate for the foreigner than the veteran. When I mentioned that many veterans are without jobs and could certainly hold the job of greeter, she defended that veterans don’t have the expertise required to read a thermometer. Who is hiring these people? The level of rudeness I experienced and also witnessed ranks up with abusiveness. Not one camera on this site to verify this mis-treatment of veterans by foreigners.

Biden wants to give $400,000 to illegals, at the same time ignoring Vets and Seniors that need assistance, struggling with low income. Biden is increasing Medicare Part B for everyone, including what is basically the fixed income of Social Security, only coming up a little COLA wise under President Trump, but not enough to offset the decline under B. Hussein Obama. Liberals want to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour so a teenager can make a lot more date and car money in a McDonalds, when a SS receipients who worked their whole life, getting as little at $450 a month(based on employment in non-participatory businesses like churchs and parochial schools) can’t afford to eat in one of the fast food places.

This country, under the brandon regime, is not bad at making big shows, but is better at stabbing our military, past and present, in the back. Our brave men and women are being treated like discarded garbage by this regime. We the People need to make sure these Veterans and Discarded Military are all treated like the brave human beings they really are! We say “thank You for your service”, but maybe we should be saying “Thank you for being willing to really stand agains ALL enemies, Foreign AND DOMESTIC”.

Trump was working to improve the treatment of veterans after the awful treatment under Obama, and now this woke military under Biden is nothing but a joke. I am not referring to the recruits, but rather those calling the shots, and forcing this CRT, and other baloney on them. This administration is doing their best to take down our military mentally, physically, and financially. Although the American people are supportive of our men and women in the military, it appears that the “elites” MSM, and left wing fruitcakes have nothing but contempt for them.

Having been exposed to the highest ranks of the military during a three-year assignment with NATO military headquarters, I can tell you that there are “military” Generals and Flag Officers and “political” persons of the same rank. My boss (Four Star Army General) was replaced by a “LTC” who wore four stars also. He was given the stars for kissing up to politicians . Obozo removed many military officers and replaced them with sycophants and minions who were “yes men” of the first order, “Obozo 2.0” who’s in office now is doing the same thing.

Recenlty on a conservative TV show that when a General gets his first star he is no longer a General but becomes a politican. Perhaps that explains the WOKE agenda!
