Iraq & Afghanistan War Vets Speak Out

A group of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has taken out an ad in the Washington Post critical of Bush and his handling of veterans issues.

The ad says, in part, "WITHOUT IMMEDIATE CHANGES, four out of five returning Veterans could be turned away from care at VA hospitals. That’s a raw deal the American people will not tolerate."

Let's help these guys in any way we can, and be proud of them for speaking out. Old guys like me aren't going to be around forever, so we need to be cultivating the next generation of liberal progressives to carry on the fight.
