God Bless America ... and God Bless Our Soldiers

Those of you who know me or who have read this blog more than once know that I dearly love our veterans. Those brave men and women went out and faced things we will never have to face, endured things we can't even imagine enduring, and suffered unspeakable horrors so we might raise our children in safety. I can't even explain the way I feel when I leave my house on Veteran's Day and see the men in their green hats, selling poppies outside the store. I buy one every year and I wear it proudly. Thank you, men and women of the Armed Forces, for doing what you knew was right and standing up in defense of our country.

Now, President Obama has done this.

I am so appalled, I can't even offer a coherent comment.

Will America rectify this horrible mistake and vote that man out of office next go-round, or is this nation going to allow him to continue on as he started?

Amen, Tristi. God bless our men and women in uniform. Barack Obama was a colossal mistake on the part of the American people. It's time to own up to the mistake we made and rectify it. Barack Obama has to go.

I'm so saddened by that news. Those servicemen/women deserve better.

OH my gosh. I'm just.....speechless.

I haven't been watching TV - have *ANY* news media picked up on this at all?

Who do I talk to about starting impeachment proceedings??

That is such a shame. Mr. Obama surely could have found a way to make sure those 26 Guard veterans would have pensions until they passed away. Come on, how much longer do they really have to live?

What has happened to the notion of loyalty and kindness, and why do some politicans seem to lack those virtues?

Thanks for the news, Tristi, even though it is disheartening.

I read this a few days ago and was appalled. It's a travesty that certainly isn't getting any mainstream coverage.
