CALLING ALL VETERANS – ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE, MARINES, COAST GUARD, MERCHANT MARINES

SYMBOLS OF OUR SERVICE

SYMBOLS OF OUR SERVICE

I am putting a call out to all veterans to take up the pen and write their Representatives and tell them how disappointed you are in their performance and how upset you are with President Obama and his policies and the direction he is taking our country.  All of us took the oath to “preserve and protect” the Constitution of the United States.  Just because we are no longer serving, does not mean we should shirk our duty to our Country. Now more than ever, we must do everything we can within the constructs of the Constitution and laws to protect the sanctity of our fragile Democracy.  Try as I might, I cannot do this alone.  We must work together, as one voice, to get our elected Reps attention.  The Uniform Code Of Military Justice (UCMJ) prohibits active duty personnel from uttering any criticism of the President, but we can…….  Tell our Reps to abide by the Constitution and it’s tenets.  Tell them to take to heart, the language contained in the Bill of Rights and truly understand WHY it was written containing the verbiage it does.  In all our branches of service, hundreds of thousands have died all over the world in the fight to preserve or promote democracy.  If we allow this bastion of Democracy to slip into the mediocrity of socialism, all of those deaths and sacrifices will have been made in vain and rendered meaningless.  So please, take up the pen as I have and join in the dialogue and fight for democracy.  I would hate to have done nothing, and stood by as our way of life slipped away without even a whimper from me.  I would be just as guilty as those who perpetrated the crime……….
