Happy Veterans Day 2013!

Vintage-Veterans-Day2

Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

And President Eisenhower updated the holiday on October 8, 1954, “In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose. Toward this end, I am designating the Administrator of Veterans’ Affairs as Chairman of a Veterans Day National Committee, which shall include such other persons as the Chairman may select, and which will coordinate at the national level necessary planning for the observance.”

Thank each and every veteran today, for we are a free country due to their sacrifice.

And let’s keep the pressure on the politicians to make sure to take care of our country’s promise to each and every veteran for taking care of them in return for their service, since the politicians seem to dislike veterans once their purpose is served.

And lastly, all veterans can benefit from a few freebies today. Note: Most freebies are available on Monday, November 11. Be prepared to show military ID in order to cash in these Veterans Day freebies. Source: Parade

It’s A Disgrace

The Ethan Bearman Show

 

The Navy Seal who shot Osama Bin Laden is destitute and essentially abandoned by our government. Is this right? What is the level of support we should provide all of our combat veterans?

And when our veteran’s come home, how do they adapt back to civilian life and find a job? I will speak with Karen & Colin Archipley of Archi’s Acres,  founders and creators of the Veterans Sustainable Agriculture Training (VSAT) program.

Facebook, Google, Apple and nearly every large multinational corporation pays almost no corporate tax. Even though it is legal, is it ethical? How do they do it?

A U.S. tire magnate didn’t just reject a French request, he verbally blasted them too.

Egypt fills the Gaza smuggling tunnels with sewage. Where are the protests and flotillas?

Politicians Hate Military Veterans

HomelessVets

There is a long history in the United States of America of politicians sending our young men and women off to war and then ignoring their plight upon return.

One of the most disgraceful in our nation’s history was in 1932 when over 20,000 impoverished World War I veterans marched on Washington D.C. to collect a “bonus” promised to them in 1924, thus they were called the Bonus Army. The repugnant politicians, particularly President Hoover, called on the active military to evict them.

General Douglas MacArthur and Major George S. Patton have black marks on their records in my book by using tear gas, tanks, and cavalry to drive them out. Homeless, hungry, and penniless these men were driven away by their comrades-in-arms and the very politicians that in World War I sent over 4 million citizens to war with over 300,000 casualties.

My blood boils and my heart cries out writing this as should yours reading. How could they possibly do this one might think…

A few years before the Bonus Army incident in 1888, John P. Jones and Arcadia B. de Baker granted by deed 387 acres in West Los Angeles to “the Veterans of the United States Armed Forces in order to form a more perfect National Home, establish justice, ensure tranquility, provide for the necessary shelter and healthcare, promote the general well-being of our fellow Veterans, and secure the blessings of respect for ourselves and our posterity…” Fast forward to today and we find out that nothing really changes.

The largest concentration of homeless veterans is in Los Angeles with over 8000 of the estimated 107,000 across the USA. It has taken the ACLU to file suit against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on June 8, 2011, to try to force them to use the land for the veterans and house them.

What do you mean use the land for the veterans? In the intervening 120 years, developers and politicians conspired to use the land other than as intended. Oh yes dear readers, an Enterprise Rent-A-Car lot, facilities for UCLA, and more have taken that land. Not veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Let’s add some more salt to that wide open wound. The VA has made no firm commitment and has put forth the same plan they did in 2007. Needless to say the ACLU and I both are not pleased. Nor should you be satisfied.

If you ever supported going to war and even if you never have but care about our veterans, the next time you go to a town hall meeting or encounter a politician I want you to look that person in the eye and ask them what specifically they have done, beyond simple words, to care for our veterans. When they don’t give a satisfactory answer, which they won’t, let them know they can never receive a vote from you until they put into ACTION a remedy for this national disgrace.
