Memorial Day 2014

Jim came back from Afghanistan with a wounded body. Joe came back from Afghanistan with a wounded mind. The two Shoals area men are now dead. Both died during the past year by their own hand, although the death of Jim has been declared an accident. Neither man deserved to die. Both men deserved much more help than they received from our government.

This Memorial Day, take time to do a little research about our country’s Veterans Administration. Yes, the VA is for those who are living, not those we memorialize each May, but unless someone does something soon about the VA, many more who have made it back to the home front will yet become victims of war.

To the families of Jim and Joe, we say thank you for their service. May you find some peace.
