As a combat veteran I cannot support this legislation. The federal government doesn’t adequately fund these federal war memorials as it is, and they want to effectively defund these things entirely? How about pulling funds from war profiteers and sinking it into the upkeep of these memorials before we start pulling funding from application fees? I mean, if y’all REALLY care about vets as much as you say you do that would be the least you could do. It’s a down payment. Fully funding the VA instead of diverting funds to privatization would be another good step, as would approving medical marijuana option for vets receiving medical services through the VA. If you’re not willing to do any of that then kindly stop pretending you give a shit about veterans. This bill is a smoke screen, and an obvious trap.
