Memorial Day and the Elections: Where are the Veterans?

While placing flowers on graves at two cemeteries on Memorial Day I noticed a very big difference from prior years. There were very few graves decorated with flowers or flags.

I would guess that less than 1% were visited. In the course of searching for new member prospects I ask many

people if they are Veterans, thinking that people with some military experience are more likely to be interested in our programs and purpose. I don’t get as many “Yes”, answers as I used to. The number of Veterans in the House of Representatives and Senate gets smaller each year, too.

The Military Budget and Healthcare for our nation for our nation are huge costs to manage. Many experienced people are leaving office this year. Newcomers will be making expensive decisions without the wisdom of the past. Please make your election choices thoughtfully.
