To all the Veterans of Comanche County: ,

I attempted to obtain assistance for my 97 year old Father, who is also a World War II veteran. After months and months of waiting, he finally received a letter informing him that he would not even receive enough to pay for five hours a day of care.

How pitiful that a Veteran cannot remain in his home until his passing in America while the top officials in the Veterans Administration are paid large amounts of money.

Our Congressmen and Senators are willing to take illegals, who have never contributed anything to this country and pay for health care, housing, food stamps, education for their children and anything else they need, while their own tax paying veterans are neglected. What a disgrace!

Is it any surprise that the suicide rate is so high among our Veterans?
