I am in agreement with you. If we all had more time to better prepare and plan this event (Say November), it would have had an even bigger turnout
than it may. However, it may have something to do with the shutdown possibly affecting the GI Bill/educational entitlements, veteran's disability
benefits etc, that made this short notice happen.
Heck, "I" would have gone to it if I had known earlier than I did because I would have been able to start saving up some scratch earlier. But now I
have to hunker down in Connecticut and wait and see if I can continue my schooling in November. And if this political bs remains, I'm done sir
done,via inability to pay ANY of my future bills. (Which will lead to my credit plummeting and interest rates skyrocketing) No food, no driving my car
w/o insurance, no nothing until they square this away. To say that the country in which me and others fought,bled and died in the mud and sand for has
betrayed it's veterans would be an understatement of the highest order. Let it be known that the vets waited patiently for the people in office and
those that voted for them (Or didn't vote at all) to get their "house" in order. They have failed us, themselves and our collective futures through
their complacency, ignorance and apathy.
But as Wrabbit2000 said, if there is a second, more...hands on kind of march/protest in the future, I WILL find a way there or anywhere it may be.
