VETERANS DAY: Politicians being hypocritical

I have been listening to the president and other politicians talk about our veterans and thanking them for their service. I find it rather insulting that the politicians give there thanks on TV for all to see while they are sitting in a back room trying to figure out how to take away the benefits that these brave men and women have earned.

If they truly cared for the veterans, they would not be looking for ways to take from them what they have earned. I want to say thank you to all who have served and are serving our country with no regard for there own life and welfare. I want to say thank you for leaving your families and for fighting for our freedoms. God bless you.
