Support our Veterans

Read a disturbing article in the New York Times yesterday which spoke to the alarming rate of suicides by returning veterans. The initial thoughts were that these were prompted by post traumatic stress but further evidence indicates they may be from exposure to frequent explosions. Whatever the causes I would urge every citizen to become aware of these tragedies and write to your congress person demanding that the services for every vet be expanded. There is no excuse for the VA to have inadequate resources to meet the need.These young Americans have experienced the horrors of war and should be treated with the utmost kindness and respect. I have been no fan of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I revere those who serve in the military. They are daily in harms way because they courageously represent their country with pride and dedication. They deserve all of us to support them without qualification.
