LET US RAISE HELL

Appearance before City Council on Wednesday, 25th of Jaanuary

Appearance at the City Council on the 25th of January


I am going before the Portland City Council on 25 January at about 0930 to protest their lack of action concerning the treatment of our National Guard and members of the armed forces from Oregon. I am going to ask them to set up a commission to handle veteran's affairs here within the city.

The governor does have a commission on veteran affairs, however I suspect it is not as active as we would want. I believe it is now everyone's responsibility to insure that a vet will receive everything promised him/her by the government.

I am well aware that there is a tsunami just over the horizon and many people are just ignoring the coming disaster. The Vets, who are now soldiers, will be hard pressed to gain benefits if we do not stand up for them, NOW!

Protesting to Congress or the Dept. of Defense is not enough; we must take on every elected official from the city councils to the President and put pressure on them to keep the promise this time. If you can, join me---if not, keep fighting for our brothers and sisters in arms who cannot go to meetings and raise hell.
