VFW SUPPORTS GOLD STAR FAMILIES
.
TO RIDICULE A GOLD STAR MOTHER IS OUT-OF-BOUNDS
August 01, 2016
,
 WASHINGTON — Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has a history of lashing out after being attacked, but to ridicule a Gold Star Mother is out-of-bounds, said the new national commander of the near 1.7 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and its Auxiliary.
 .
“Election year or not, the VFW will not tolerate anyone berating a Gold Star family member for exercising his or her right of speech or expression,” said Brian Duffy, of Louisville, Ky., who was elected July 27 to lead the nation’s oldest and largest major war veterans organization.
 .
 “There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed,” he said. “Giving one’s life to nation is the greatest sacrifice, followed closely by all Gold Star families, who have a right to make their voices heard.”

Congressman MacArthur –

You seem to like that word “Disavow”, and to use it often.
 .
Now would be a most excellent time for you to make a strong and unequivocal statement “disavowing” the Republican Presidential nominee’s ill treatment of a soldier who gave all, and a mother who gave her everything.
 .
What excuse can you possibly come up with?  There is none.
 .
What justification can you possibly gin up?  There is none.
 .
What possible misdirection can you apply?
 .
There is no spinning this.
 .
That man is IN NO WAY FIT to serve as Commander in Chief.
 .
He has no honor.  None.
 .
Do you?
 .
This is a watershed moment in this campaign.
 .
This test is “Pass/Fail”.
 .
Do you stand with our veterans and their families, as I do, or will you prove what many already suspected – that you believe in your hubris that the veteran vote is yours, regardless?
 .
Will you rise to the occasion, or crawl down into the mud with the narcissistic sociopath?
 .
The voters of District Three, including over 98,000 Veterans and their families, are waiting, and watching…and your continued silence proves your assent.
 .
You, and our voters, should know what was recently shared in comparing us, at a VFW Meeting…
 .
“Tom believes he owns the Veterans’ votes – Fred knows the Veterans OWN his.”

    MacArthur has been shown like Trump to care about nothing except money

    There is so much shame to go around when it comes to veterans issues. Since the Vietnam War New Jersey downplayed the needs of its veteran community to a ridiculous level. For example, when Fort Dix had the swine flu incident New Jersey public health and Fort Dix medical public health drs. worked closely to resolve it. Thereafter, it became politically noticeable (possibly because NJ Public Health was directed by a WWII doc) that suicide and crime among veterans was high. Focus studies never reached the funding level for NJ Public Health. So for several decades 60’s thru 2016 New Jersey has no way to measure the deaths of veterans. Was it suicide? Mental health related? Or middle eastern disease related? Its all very hush, hush, so we don’t know how many suicides or deaths correspond to combat veterans, in-country vs out country, peacetime, their diseases. Nothing. On this basis alone, one cannot expect total interest in the elections from the broadly represented veteran voters. Who can blame them?
