To all the veterans alive or dead able or disabled I salute you. It was a act of 'pride' that empathy went out to the people hurt or lost in the WTC disaster. The disabled vets along with every day people get less help than dogs or cats, in my town there is only ONE (1) restaurant that will deliver minimum $20 and One beer-soda that will deliver minimum 4 cases, all the rest have 'take out'. Yeah 'takeout' are we to be issued wings, to fly out to no-empathy restaurants for their 'takeout'?



We all waited for the new Mellenium, for things to change for all disabled vets and IMHO it took a 'terrorist' act for the free and the brave americans to show empathy and sympathy towards our own brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, relatives and friends at the World Trade Center in NYC. Nothing has changed for the millions of disabled people in this United States Of America wether veterans or not. Said one day before Veterans Day by a U.S. Navy 'veteran' and disabled man with a document # DD-215 Honourable Discharge!



Let's change the thinking now, for the war in Afganistan will 'sadly' provide more

veterans that will have died for their country or have been wounded or disabled for the rest of their lives. Do we have to have our service men/women die or get disabled on American 'soil' to be treated with empathy.



IMHO no matter where veterans have served they are serving their country to provide freedom from tyranny ad oppression during colonial times through Communist 'Cold' war times to pushing back a dictator that took over a smaller country than theirs. When the war on Terrorism ends we should have open arms and hearts to the 'vets' coming home to the "Land of the free and home of the brave" AKA United States of America.
