An Apology to All Veterans
To all Veterans:
You represent the the spirit that once made America a super power. I apologize that our government and some of our people do not give you the respect and services you deserve, in spite of the fact that we all know you did not enlist in the military in order to receive gratitude. You served because you believe in the founding principles of this great nation.
I apologize for the disgraceful actions of the VA that cost the lives of so many of our heroes. It is inexcusable and rises to the level of criminal prosecution.
I am also sorry that so many people, including our own government and President, do not believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights that you put your lives on the line to defend.
You are truly the best representatives of the great American spirit that once prevailed against all odds.
I thank God for you.
Because of your SACRIFICE, I live in a nation where I am free to pursue my dreams.
Because of your COURAGE, I may proudly proclaim America, home of the brave and free!
Because of your UNDEFEATED STRENGTH, I live fearing no enemy.
Thank you for your service and THANK YOU for LIBERTY.
I will NEVER take it for granted.
