A Veterans Thoughts on Veterans Day


Veterans are short-changed every dayVeterans are short-changed every day
by Peter Macdonald Sgt USMC

Veterans day is to show respect to the 10% of our children that become Veterans. 25% of the homeless in the U.S. are veterans. What does this say about the U.S.?

Our children that go off to war or conflict come back to a world you people have no idea of. We have lived through experiences you can not conceive that could even exist. We now live with mental and physical disabilities that you sometimes can not see. We are the ones that gave our lives for your freedom.

We as veterans ask nothing form you, except that you do not allow anyone to diminish the rights guaranteed by our Constitution.

Veterans rights are short-changed every day. Politicians only talk about veterans when it benefits them. Citizens discard veterans on the street, because they are the drug addicts, alcoholics or homeless bums…


I can speak of what NH did to this veteran,. I came back from my 31 months overseas tour during the Vietnam conflict 100% disabled. Two of my three injuries were received in separate combat support missions. I killed before I remember kissing my first "round eyed" girl.

NH and the Veterans administration has stopped my VA medical for political self gain of special people. This is against the law to stop medical for injuries received defending this nation.

The newspapers censor the facts from the public. The news media refuses to print my opinion letters. It is not just this Veteran that the U.S. treats like this. I just happen to speak freely and take the abuse issued by these criminal special people.

I did eight convoys as American advisor to deliver surplus supplies to friendly camps in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. This Veterans wishes he never came home to live the disgrace this Nation U.S. puts Veterans through.

I realize this Veterans opinion will never be printed. This Veterans just has to express his opinion exercising his "Free Speech that the United States has silenced.
