America Must Do Better by Their Veterans!Dr. J. Alva Scruggs, BS, MS, MA, EdD Special to Salem-News.com
What do you think about this?
(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) - A member of your family who was sent to Afghanistan comes and cannot find a job. He tries for over a year working in fast food joints and other minimum wage jobs. He has finished college and thought he was ready to see his part of the "American dream" for which he fought!!
He says, "Granddad, I did not go to Afghanistan and fight in the great patriotic war for our American way of life to come back to find that I am not nor it seems that I ever will be more than just a struggling po forgotten ex-soldier boy. Ain't that a kick in the head??"
His is but one in many of the stories American Veterans of this "Great Patriotic War in Afghanistan and Iraq" are experiencing!!
They must move in with their parents, if they are lucky enough to have parents, who are still working and put their lives on hold.
They are the lucky ones. There are many ex-soldiers who are on the street homeless, begging for beer money and looking for little more than a day-to-day survival handout.
How can Americans in good conscience train their sons or daughters to kill (or be killed) an enemy, who they do not know, for their country and return to neglect and second-class citizenship??
These are the prime candidates ready trained recruits for the killing private enterprises of the Blackwaters and KBC mercenaries of the New World Order.
They are ready to fight for money with any nation, cooperation or CEO capable of hiring them!! They are the real universal soldiers!! The Army slogan should be, "Give me your son or daughter strong and we will make them Army strong and the best killers they can be!!"
Think out-side-of-the-box, Please!!!
Come on Obama, change/solve just one more thing!!!
