Do Not Abandon Our Vets!

In honor of Veteran’s Day – 365 Days a Year! To my father and step-father who served in War World II, and to my uncle who served in The Koren War. To Veterans everywhere, thank you!

                      You were there for us and now we need to be there for you!

Why We Abandoned…’Do Not Tell’…in the Military!

We finally understand and accept that if your rights are denied…mine are not protected!

As a black man who grew-up during the civil rights movement in  America, I am keenly aware of the excuses given for not granting rights.

  • The bible says…
  • You are not white…
  • You are not equal..
  • You are 3/5 of a man….
  • You are not good enough…
  • It has always been that way…
  • You are not smart enough…
  • You are not responsible enough…
  • We do not want you marrying our daughters…
  • You came from an ape…
  • You are black…
  • You are needed to clean my house, raise my children, shine my shoes, and pick my crops…
  • You will drink or eat at the same sources…
  • You will want to vote and have blacks representing you in congress …
  • You are a boy…
  • I don’t want to have to respect you as another human being…
  • You have not earned it…
  • I don’t want you to have any rights, because it take away from mine…
  • Not now…wait!

Soldiers in any branch of service to their country have enough to worry about!

  • Being killed…
  • Being wounded…
  • Being capture…
  • Losing their ability to walk, speak, see, write, think, sleep, hold, eat, drink, hear, control their bodily functions, or have sex…
  • Providing for their family…
  • Loss of job and income…
  • Loss of their place in society…
  • Developing PTSD…
  • Experiencing the loss of fellow soldiers…
  • Being abandoned by their nation…
  • Becoming a prison of war…
  • Not receiving the care their need when they return…
  • Missing milestones in their children development…
  • Growing apart from their spouse, children, and friends…
  • Experiencing a change in their personality or outlook of life…

The last thing they need “is being discharged while being gay!

You are who you are!

Telling someone to not be themselves is stupid and it shows a lack of respect for our fellow human being! The following nations allow gays to serve openly in their army forces:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Britain
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Slovenia
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Uruguay
  • And now…The United State of America!

 

When you respect life… you respect all-life!

Not just the ones you prefer!

Abandoned Veterans

Abandoned Veterans (est. 150,000 – 200,00 homeless) was inspired by the thoughts I experienced as I read an AP article by Erin McClan. He writes about a 28 year old, male Veteran who served two tours in Iraq that is now homeless and lives in a shelter in MA. He has been unable to work since returning from the war and has lost his wife, his love, his health, his home, and his friends. He would clean his gun and place it in his mouth and reportly rode his motorcycle at 100 miles per hour as he tried to stand on seat of his motorcycle. Before I started this article I identified 32 resources sites for Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, Desert Storm, The Vietnam War, and the Korean Police Action (War). The health of a nation is shown by its love for the people that protect them. Please click here to read more…
