Letter: Country being moved in wrong direction by national leaders
America deserves better. One week after World War II veterans were denied access to the Memorial, the Democrats had an immigration rally on those very grounds. Thousands of illegal aliens were gladly let in. Nancy Pelosi thanked Obama for allowing the rally. It is obvious that Obama and Pelosi and their like have little regard for our veterans. But this is nothing new. On Memorial Day in 2012, Vietnam veterans were not allow to a lay wreaths at the Memorial in honor of the fallen soldiers. The reason was that Obama was coming there to make a speech, and the area was closed to everyone except special people with special passes.
Thousands of Vietnam veterans were gathered with wreaths to recognize our fallen solders but were turned away so that a politician could give a speech. When Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and even Bill Clinton spoke on Memorial Day, our veterans were welcome to attend. Our country is being led by Marxists and communists, many of them spat on our soldiers when they returned from Vietnam. I am very ashamed to have a president that has such little regard for our veterans, but then what can we expect from someone that hates everything this country was founded on?
