  1. It is with great shame and deepest regret that these men and their families have not received recognition and compensation for their service and personal sacrifice.
    To this day, our country has not learned from the mistakes of it’s past and continue to neglect the merits of our veterans.

    I know my words mean so little but with my greatest effort to express my gratitude.

    I thank you
