Veterans denied by legislature

-A A +A

On receiving news of the three Veterans being denied road memorials by the Tallahassee politicians, I am not really surprised. 

I have been actively crusading (for) recognition for Lance Cpl. Buessing for what seems like years. I was VFW  Commander when Lance Cpl. Buessing's funeral was in Cedar Key. 

The question I leave with you is from my heart: What if young Brian would have dragged his feet the way Tallahassee is dragging theirs? 

What if the veterans had treated their duty the way that we are sometimes branded and treated? 

What does a Medal of Honor or Purple Heart mean to those who don't share the feeling that some of us do?  

God Bless America and God bless Lance Cpl. Buessing, Sgt. Campbell and Spc. James Page.
