The Past 7 DaysSubmitted by Misfit4Peace on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 08:36
Over the past 7 days I have spoken to people serving..in one case..the mother of someone serving. They are all getting ready to be shipped back out...unsure as to where they are going next. The things they told me made my skin crawl.
It was said that things we are all hearing on the news, and reading from other sources, does not even come close to what's really going on.
They are running out of everything, Some do not have bullet proof vest. Many are going hungry with only 2 meals, and if they have time, a couple of snacks a day. Some get less than that so they can be broken down to do ''the job'' we the people are worried about.
Many have had their pay cut..almost in half. Their housing, medical care, education, all of it..gone. Two told me many voted for Ron Paul, but somehow their votes just never made it in the ballot box.
I wish I could have learned more, but all where scared, it seemed, to talk. And when I asked what was it going to take for them to stop the wars and come home and stay here, most just got a very sad look in their eyes and said they didn't know.
One started to cry and answered, "Another Ron Paul, and a mass awakening."
