So True

I got this in an email and decided to post it here.


We need to show more sympathy for these people.

* They travel miles in the heat.
* They risk their lives crossing a border
* They don't get paid enough wages
* They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do.
* They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
* They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day every day.

I'm not talking about illegal Mexicans; I'm talking about our troops! Doesn't it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don't support our troops and are now threatening to defund them?

That is so true Rebecca. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to pass it on to my husband. =)

Wow! What a way to look at that issue! Thanks for sharing this. I will pass it on.

Thank you. The recent tragedy at Ft. Bragg only accentuates the problem. The infrastructure of our military posts all over the world is old and crumbling and congress wants to cut the money.
