Let's Take Care of Our Veterans

This post is in honor of my neighbor John.  John passed away this week.  He was in his late seventies.  John was a veteran in World War II.  About a year ago he was awarded medals from this war.  It took him this long to receive them.  It took him this long to be recognized as a hero. 
For over three years he has been trying to get his pension from being in the military.  Him and his wife were barely making ends meet.  Now he's gone.  His wife has to deal with trying to get his pension so she can keep going.  It is a hard thing to deal with when your loved one has passed away.
This is in his memory and all the other vets that fought for our country.  Click here for a video tribute.
