From the President of Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association, John Shafer
WE NEED OUR MEMBERS HELP THIS WEEKEND
Chairman Miller is the last hurdle to get this bill to the floor. Below are the Speaker's, Majority Leader's, and Chairman Miller's numbers.
Speaker Ryan: 202-225-0600
Majority Leader McCarthy: 202-225-4000
Chairman Miller: 850-479-1183
We need our members to call the three phone numbers above and leave messages (they won't pick up on the weekend), but leave a message similar to the following:
There are many families who still quietly mourn the loss of loved one’s killed operating helicopters in the Vietnam War. Their pain and sense of loss remains today, some forty-one years after the last helicopter crewman died in Southeast Asia.
Placing the Vietnam Helicopter Crewmember Memorial within Arlington National Cemetery will ease the sorrow and loss of the many, knowing the nation has recognized and honored the sacrifice within this place of honor. It is the right thing to do, now, for the nearly 5,000 helicopter crewmembers who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to our great nation.
... A picture of Tom Schuckman, age 19, in a place called: Cu Chi, RVN [South Vietnam, in early 1968.], full of piss and vinegar. 'We were young -- We were Soldiers.'
If there is one thing that really corks me, it is the constant betrayal of Veterans' confidences, lies, deceit, and messing with our 'already short life span, and benefits !' And I will leave no stone unturned in disseminating the bare, shameful truth of the frequent matters of cutting corners when it comes to giving we Veterans the care that we were promised. This is also why Mr. Trump got the "Vet's Vote." It's bad enough to steal the Veterans' money, health benefits... and giving it to illegal aliens, especially the Islamic oinks who sneak over here via Obama's 'underground rail road,' seeking to destroy our country !! I am sure that all true Patriots will want to share this news, far and wide, today.
