If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 John 3:17-18
Our veterans have served our country so courageously and admirably, so when it’s our turn to reciprocate, do they get from us what’s been promised? Too often, they don’t. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs – the successor to the Veterans Administration – was exposed in 2014 as a bureaucratic, scandalous mess that offered veterans second-rate healthcare with indefensible wait times (wait times so long that some died waiting for treatment).
The Department of Veterans Affairs has emblazoned on its buildings a quotation from Abraham Lincoln: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan.” But as is so often the case with bureaucracies, the bureaucrats’ primary goal seems to be serving themselves rather than serving the American people.
That’s simply unacceptable. Our veterans fought for us; now we must fight for them.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, if you know a veteran, call him and thank him for his service, and then sit down and write a letter to your congressman asking him to ensure that our nation’s veterans receive the support they deserve.
