Don't reduce service members' benefits

Share

Answering the call of their country, men and women went out to defend America. Many lost an arm, a leg or a life doing this.

Now Congress wants to reduce their benefits. “They are healthy enough to keep working,” a signer of the bill was heard to say.

Well that goes for all who voted for this bill.

When they are not re-elected, they are healthy enough to keep working, not the four or three day week they are accustomed to, or the six to eight paid vacations they took every year, but a real job out in the real world — that is if they can find one.
