With all the scandals of the Democratic administration, it is difficult to concentrate on just one.

This, though, touches one near and dear to my heart. My husband is a Vietnam-era veteran, two of my children are veterans and two more are active duty Navy. Stories of massive failures in the veterans' health care system, lies and corruption, unnecessary deaths of those who served and followed the IRS scandal. Now we have the Bergdahl/Gitmo scandal. All these are connected to the amateurs in charge.

I plead with the readers to join the American Legion's call for accountability and resignations. I thank Congressman Steve Daines for standing up for our veterans in demanding the resignation (not reassignment) of those guilty, beginning with Secretary Shinseki, already resigned. Where was Democrat Sen. Walsh? MIA or, at least caught waiting for his Democrat bosses' orders.
