Many of us know that Montana is second to Alaska in percentage of veterans. We are very proud of the fact that we, or our brothers or sisters, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, etc., served in the military of our country.

This week a VA program that allows veterans to stay at home with assistance was cut in half. The program provided services like light housekeeping, meals and companionship by local agencies for hundreds of vets here in our state so that they could stay in their homes. Now, without this program, hundreds of them, i.e. someone you know, will be affected by this decision which will cost a lot more than the cost of in-home care.

Our brave men and women served this country, and now it seems you care more about a person having or not having a right to protest than you do about them. Why aren’t both sides of this current controversy fighting for our friends and neighbors? Why aren’t you using that same amount of determination about whichever side you are on to raise awareness of this, a very serious and unpatriotic act. Stop your playground fight long enough to come together to fight for our veterans. They fought for you.
