Republican Response to a Growing Veteran Issue

Tired of listening to the whining? Use your People’s Power – your vote, your wallet and your voice to actually make a difference for our Veterans
Here’s another example of people blowing smoke so they don’t have to address the real issues of the day. I’ve been in the VFW and Legion halls and listened to the alcohol induced war-stories; I’ve experienced being given a long boring lecture at the Non-Commissioned Officer’s Academy by someone who it later turned out was never in Vietnam or was a B-52 gunner. So what?
“It has been stated that only one in five men who claim to be Vietnam Veterans actually served in Vietnam. The prosecution of those who are now claiming to be something they are not must be relentless and to the fullest extent of the law. I cannot imagine why someone would want to claim to have gone through what we did in country and when we came home. Then again, it was wanna-bes who made things bad for us at home!” http://www.veteranstoday.com/article8719.html
We have veterans killing themselves everyday of every week of every month of every year – who gives a damn! We have veterans living under bridges, in alleyways and beneath our city streets – who gives a damn? Are we really going to form up some sort of Stolen Valor Secret Police Force to uncover someone who lied on their resume to get a job? Quit listening to the whiners and do something real to help our vets out. How would you feel if you received a letter announcing that someone you love is killing themselves so their wife or husband can get the insurance money to take care of their children? Join our group at VetsmeetVets and get involved http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2255755&trk=myg_ugrp_ovr as a local counselor or advisor for vets in need; we’ll train you up and help you in whatever way we can.
If you’re hiring veterans or are a staffing firm or recruiter that is friendly to the Military and Veterans KUDOS! – They can get you a certified copy of their DD214 to prove their valor and service; you don’t need another government agency to do that for you. Join my group Military Network and find qualified and eager veterans, many with active security clearances – at no cost to you or to the Veteran.
Neat Idea! Why don’t you do something real, like helping me get a True Veteran elected to the Lieutenant Governor’s job in Pennsylvania? A veteran who promises to get together with the other 49 Lt. Governors and try to form some sort of Lt. Governor’s group to address our veteran issues like suicide, homelessness, joblessness, health and family issues. A True Veteran who promises to visit his state’s troops and veterans overseas and in the veteran and civilian hospitals around the country. A True Veteran who focuses on what he can do to help and then puts leather on the sidewalk and goes out and does it.
Look around yourself for places you too can help instead of listening to someone whining about some worthless piece of dirt lying to get a job (in today’s economy can you understand why the lying?) join my group on LinkedIn “Military Network” at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=59436&trk=myg_ugrp_ovr where we are linking up veterans with Military Friendly Staffing Professionals and Recruiters and finding them jobs.

Veterans comprise 12% of the working population of Pennsylvania, 14% of small businesses or 137,772 are owned by vets and 7% or 9,641 of those are owned by disabled vets. Pennsylvania veteran owned small businesses bring over 5 billion dollars per year to the state.
Join my other group at Mansfield for PA, http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2311799&trk=myg_ugrp_ovr where I am trying to get Mr. Mansfield elected to the state Lt. Governors position so he can fulfill his promises to vets. Do a search and see if there are other veterans running for public office, and let’s put them into positions where they can make a difference.
Use your power – your vote, your wallet and your voice to actually make a difference. You don’t need to live in Pennsylvania to help our veterans out. Send me a $5 or $10 or $100 check or whatever you can, to help me get one veteran elected to a position where he can make a difference – join our groups – stay informed – and when you can – use your vote, your wallet and your voice to help.
